Steve Jenkins Evangel Crusaders Offense – 1-4 High Double Loop
1 passes to 3. 5 and 4 set a staggered screen for 2 who curls into the lane. If 2 isn’t open, he continues to the corner as 4 curls into the lane off of a screen from 5 at the high post. 1 moves down to the wing and 5 pops to the top of the key after setting the screen. If neither 2 or 4 are open, 3 passes to 5. If 4’s defender chases him over the screen, 4 looks to hold his defender on the high side as 5 looks to make the hi/lo pass to 4 or passes to 1 who looks inside to 4.
