Ken Atkins

Against an odd-front zone press.

3 and 4 are ballside and middle as the ball is brought upcourt. 5 is always on the weakside block when 1 or 2 has the ball, look for a lob pass whenever possible.
 
See Zone offence - Dave Odom vs 1-3-1.

3 turns and faces on a pass, the first look is 5.

sketch
3
On a pass to 1, 3 cuts to the ballside wing and is replaced by 4, 5 slides weakside.

sketch
4
On a pass from 2 to 4, 3 basket cuts and can go to the baseline, 5 replaces, or optionally 5 yells "stay", 3 stays in place, 5 runs the baseline.
 
(Variation - to keep 5 near the basket, have him come across ballside, 3 stays at the high post, see Dave Odom vs 1-3-1, also Press breaks - halfcourt Atkins)

sketch
5
On a skip pass from 4 to 1, 3 sprints to the ballside wing (from the baseline or high post), 5 goes weakside block, 4 fills the high post.
