Tubby Smith

In transition, flatten the defence, 2 and 3 run to the corners, 5 to the front of the rim. If X5 is playing outside 5, 1 looks to reverse the floor with a pass or dribble, 5 seals.

Chase

1 passes to 4. As 4 passes to 2, 3 touches the block then backscreens for 4, who takes a step towards the ball then goes by shoulder to shoulder looking for an overhead pass to the front of the rim. 5 posts up when 1 has the ball, then chases the ball as it is reversed, look for a hi-lo pass..

Options - to start, 1 passes to 3 who skip passes to 4 or 2 (moving up on the weakside wing), or 1 skip passes to 2.

Swing

1 passes to 4 who passes to 2 and follows to pick and roll. 5 moves up to about the elbow, 1 and 5 stagger screen for 3, who comes off as 2 comes off the pick and roll. The big is the last screener in a stagger. Always take two dribbles off a ballscreen.
