Here is a game winning play. Call is “Flood”. It is 1 of 4 lane steps we use from free throw line. “Flood” is used end game when we need a 2 or 3 to tie or win.
Islander Playbook Special:
Flood is used end game when free throw shooter must miss so offensive team can secure offensive rebound to sore a 2 or back tap for a 3.
Best, toughest offensive rebounder spaces as far away from his man as possible. In this example it is 3. When ball hits rim, 3 fakes into the lane and spins behind x3 to get inside position. 4 also spaces as far from his man on lane line as possible. When ball hits rim, 4 fights to rim line. He is trying to drag x4 with him. x5 is responsible for blocking out the shooter. In this example, 5.
1 sprints down the lane line when the ball hits the rim. Even though 1 must wait for the ball to hit the rim, he will steal a possession for his team with this offensive lane step. 3 will also steal rebounds on his spin move. 4 will be able to back tap or grab a long rebound. 2 can crash if only 2 points is needed. 2 must space to 3 for a back tap, if 3 points is needed.
