That's a Foul, March 2009

Variations and entries in flex.

a) Base action

Normal flex action on the first pass, 5 flex screens for 2 then 1 downscreens for 5.

2
If the ball is reversed to 5, teams often look at a backscreen after the flex screen, instead of a downscreen.

c) Post isolation

2 flex cuts on the pass to 4, 1 does not downscreen for 5.

4
On a return pass, 1 dribbles to create an angle for a post feed to 5, who looks to create a deep seal for the catch after screening for 2. 4 and 2 set a staggered screen for 3 on the other side of the floor.

See Offence - Maryland flex ("hold"), and Rick Majerus "naked post" in Offence - 4-out 1-in motion.
