|1-2-2 match-up situations|
See 1-2-2 vs Two-guard runner.
The attacking set is two guards, two low posts, and a baseline runner.
Two defenders guard 1 and 3, three defenders guard the three low attackers, bumping on the baseline.
With X1 on the ball, the zone has a 1-2-2 shape,
- X2 has 2
- X4 has 4
- X3 has 3
- X5 has weakside 5.
Variation - X2 picks up the ball on the left, bumping everyone else clockwise.
On a pass to 2, X2 closes out (taking away baseline), X1 drops to cover the high post, X3 sinks weakside.
X4 can front 4 from the top (slide in front), or play behind.
If 1 passes to 3, X3 takes it, 2 runs the baseline.
See 32 match-up.
With X3 on the ball,
- X5 has 2
- X1 has 1
- X2 has 4 (and is low)
- X4 has 5, and comes ballside.
Tubby Smith - if the attacking team plays with two low posts and a baseline runner, the 1-2-2 becomes almost a 2-3.
X5 closes out on a pass to 2, since X1 is covering the high post, X3 can deny a return pass.
A weakside flash creates an overload, X1 takes 4, X2 stays and takes 1.
If X2 comes with 4, there is no help in the lane.
