Horns
Horns 45 backdoor

1
2 and 3 break up and are overplayed, 1 passes to 4, 2 backcuts, 4 drop steps, 5 screens for 2, 1 replaces 2 on the ballside wing. The backcut is most effective if 2 is above 4 on the catch.

Option - against pressure, 1 can dribble chase 2, who loops to the top, if 1 passes to 4 he backcuts, exchanging roles with 2 (Arizona 1-4 offence).

Variations

- 1 first cuts for a hand-off
- 4 fakes a hand-off
- 5 just slides down to the low post, without screening for 2
- 4 cuts to get open, and 3 and 5 stagger or double screen for 2, e.g. Tubby Smith 40 series
- start in a 1-4 or 4-out 1-in set.

Also see Florida 2005 and Spurs 2007 fast breaks, Bill Self High-low motion, Australian women, Arizona high posts and Seth Greenberg Slice offences.

Or 4 can dribble hand-off with 3 (or pass and ballscreen).

goxavier.com - 4 looks at both 1 and 3.

Seth Greenberg - 4 drives at 3 so that 3 has a gap to drive.

Optionally 1 dribbles right to pick a side, only 2 blast cuts, then 5 can downscreen for 3 (see the dribble hand-off play in Defence - Pitt ballscreens).
