Offence
Argentina motion


sketch
1
Argentina is a triangle motion offence.

1 passes to 2, basket cuts, screens away for 5, then goes back out top off a downscreen from high-post 4 (pick the picker), who then goes to the weakside low post.

Winning Hoops - 5 always goes under the cross screen.

Variations

- 1 cuts off high-post 4
- 4 steps out to ballscreen for 1.

See other entry options below.

2
On ball reversal to 1, 3 downscreens for 4.

Winning Hoops - 5 ducks in on the pass, if 1 can't pass to 5 he dribbles towards 3 to signal the downscreen.

sketch
3
On the pass to 4, 3 screens away for 5 and 1 downscreens for 3.

Note that 5 always runs the baseline, the other four players rotate through each position, and the wing screens twice on each reversal.

If the pass to 4 is denied, 3 backscreens for 4, or flashes to the foul line for a pass and 4 cuts backdoor.

The pattern continues when 4 passes to 3, as 2 downscreens for 1.
