With the ball at halfcourt, X5 defends 5 in transition, seeing the ball.

With 5 at the block and the ball at midcourt, X5 is in an open position, taking up space near the elbow.

As the ball moves to the wing above the foul-line extended, X5 moves to defend 5 on the high side, his right hand denying a pass, his left hand in a closed fist to avoid grabbing 5's jersey.

When the ball is below the foul-line extended, X5 defends 5 from the low side so he can open up to cut off baseline penetration.

X5 denies with the ball up top. Do not open up when the ball is reversed to the top, a lot of teams will flex cut then have 5 duck in.

On a pass to 3, X5 opens to a help position, then stops baseline penetration by 3 with active voice and hands (taking a charge as necessary).

Then X5 denies a high-post cut by 5, and opens up to a help position when 5 returns to the block.

X5 must box out 5 if there is a shot.up
