1-2-2 match-up situations
1-3-1

See 1-2-2 vs Duke runner (high post).

X1-X2-X3 guard 1-2-3.

a) Switch

High-post 4 is not considered a major threat, X5 takes 4 but stays low with X1 on the ball in order to switch with X4.

Against a high overload, X1 may not want to extend beyond the 3-point line to pick up the ball, or even sink to help protect the high post.

See Defences - Foster 3-2, Raptors 3-2 .

5 changes sides on the pass to 3, X5 takes 5, X4 takes 4 and comes ballside, X2 sinks, X1 drops to help on the high post.

X1 helps cover the high post but guards 1, X4 has 4.

Chris Oliver - the high post is covered by the weakside low defender. They don't deny it and don't mind if it goes in there for a challenged 15-footer. They don't pressure the high post if he is not a shooter.

Don Casey - on a high-post entry from the wing, it's always the opposite back guy who comes up and covers the high post.

b) Stay with match-ups

High-post 4 is considered a threat so X5 comes high with X1 on the ball.
