Texas Quick Stagger Action
This play was originally published on FastModelSports.com.
Texas used this play early in the second half in the 2015 NCAA Tournament to get an open shot for Holmes. Ridley was called for an illegal screen, but Texas should continue with actions similar to this and force Butler to chase Jonathan Holmes around screens. If Ridley holds the screen, it will be difficult for defenders to get around him. The play starts with an entry pass to 4 at the high post. 5 (Ridley) sets an up-screen for the point guard then both 1 and 5 set a staggered screen for Holmes in the corner.
- 1 passes to 4 at the high post.
- 5 sets an up-screen for 1.4 looks to pass to 1 on the cut.
- If 1 isn’t open, he turns to screen for 2 in the corner.5 joins the screen making it a staggered look for 2.
2 cuts off of the screen for a shot.
