Baseline Coastal Carolina
American Basketball Quarterly, 2006 Q4
Four baseline inbounds plays that start with the same alignment. 1 inbounds.
On the slap of the ball, 5 rolls out to his left, getting a good angle to stagger screen with 4 for shooter 2, who first fakes a downscreen for 3 then runs off the stagger screen. 3 gets out to the weakside corner.
Don Meyer - triple - 3 turns to upscreen for 2, if 2 uses the 4-5 stagger, 3 turns and cuts to the corner; if 2 uses 3's screen, 3 uses the 4-5 stagger screen.
Fran Fraschilla - stagger slips - 3 backscreens for 2, who cuts to the weakside block, 4 and 5 stagger screen for 3, who runs to the ballside corner for a 3-pointer, 4 and 5 slip.
VCU - 3 backscreens for 2 who uses it, 3 uses the stagger, 5 screens for 4 and seals if defenders switch.
4 dives weakside, 5 dives ballside (flooding the baseline), 3 is the safety, sprinting towards halfcourt if the play is well defended.
