Villanova Wildcats

Horns Curl Roll

Villanova used this play against Kansas in the NCAA Elite 8. They roll the ball screener off of the other horns post into the lane. Then once the ball is in the post, the opposite big dives down the lane for a dunk.

Oklahoma Sooners

Zone Overload Pick & Pop

Oklahoma used this play against Oregon’s match-up zone in the Elite 8. The Sooners overload the right side of the floor and set a ball screen on the left side. On the rotation and penetration, Oregon loses some of the Sooner players allowing for a tip-in dunk on the missed shot.

Syracuse Orange

Double Down Action

Syracuse used this play over and over again in the game against Virginia. They keep a tandem of wings/posts together and have them run continuous down screens until something opens up. In this play, they iso after getting the ball to the right wing.

North Carolina Tarheels

Down Stagger Flip

UNC used this play in the second half of the Elite 8 game against Notre Dame. They run a player off of a staggered screen then flip the cutter to set a down screen for the top screener.
