FIBA 3 on 3 backscreens
FIBA Coaching Library
a) Ball reversal
Coach passes to 3, 4 backscreens for 2, X4 squeezes 4, X2 goes ballside behind both 4 and X4 (two passes away from the ball).
The defence should be forcing the offensive player to get under the screen. The defence should also be calling the screens out for each other. The defence may also have to switch if their teammate get caught on the screen. Communicate through the whole drill.
When the ball is reversed from 3 to 4, 2 backscreens for 3, X3 shoots the gap to defend.
Variation - X2 jumps to the ball in a help position, X3 goes between X2 and screener 2 (gaps).
b) Ball at the top
4 backscreens for 2 , X2 jams 2, forces a backcut and chases.
2 backscreens for 3, X3 jams and forces a backcut.
c) Towards the ball
No coach out top. 2 passes to 4 and gets a backscreen from 3. X2 goes ballside between screener 3 and defender X3.
X2 should jump to the ball, X3 should open up and let him through, then get back into position to deny a pass back to the top.
When the ball is reversed to 2, 4 backscreens for 3, X3 gaps to defend.
Progression - defend flarescreens.
