|Zone set plays |
2 passes to 3 and also cuts, 4 steps out for a pass from 3, 5 crosses the lane.
4 passes to 1, 3 and 4 space away, 1 takes a dribble out and throws it back to 2 filling the corner (1 may not need the dribble if there is space).
4 looks for 5 if a bottom defender takes away 1, or can pass to 3 out top.
Bill Self - 1 looks for a right-hand behind-the-back bounce pass to 2.
See Zone offences - Bill Self, Kermit Davis zone motion, Heath Millar (drag action).
Oliver - for continuity, on the dribble up after the last cutter 1 could reverse it to start the sequence again.
(Option - if 1 passes to 2 and gets a return pass, 2 becomes the first cutter)
Bill Self (zone motion) - you have to cut any time you pass above you.
To get 2 as the first cutter,
- 1 pushes him through on the dribble, 1 will be the second cutter,
- or 1 passes to 2 and gets the ball right back, 2 cuts.
(Variation - 1 cuts to get a handback from 2, see Wichita State)
4-out spacing with no high post, the corner player is the second cutter.
1 passes to 2 and is the first cutter.
See YouTube video - Zone quick hitters that work.
1 passes to 2, who corner cuts on a return pass, swing the ball to 3.
Keep 1 out top to move the ball.
(Variation - 4 starts in the corner and cuts after 2, see above)
The weakside post pops out to set up ball reversal and double cutters, 3 comes under, 2 starts to cut.
