50 on fullcourt press - trap the main ballhandler.

X4 applies enormous pressure on O5 so he cannot pass to O3 or O4. X1 and X2 do not deny, they force O1 and O2 to head for the corners, switch any screen. X3 looks at the eyes of the passer. X5 is ready to intercept any long pass.

On the inbounds pass to O1, X4 traps with X1 with great ball pressure. X2 shoots the gap towards O5 looking for a steal. If he does not intercept a pass he must contain the ballhandler.


If O5 passes to O2 (or O1 passes directly to O2), X3 shoots the gap looking for a steal then must contain the ball. X4 denies O1, and X2 and X1 sprint back.


If O1 passes to O4 (or O3), X3 shoots the gap looking for a steal then must contain the ball, X1 denies O1, X2 and X4 sprint back.
