  • The players start in a 1-4 high formation.

  • To start the offense, 1 can pass to either 4 or 5 in the high post.

  • 1 will pass to 5 for this play.

  • After passing to 5, 1 will cut toward the basket looking for a hand off from 5.

  • If 1 is open, 5 should hand the ball to them.

  • As 1 is cutting, 2 should also make a back-cut to the basket looking for a pass from 5.

  • If 5 does not hand the ball to 1, they should pivot toward the basket and look for 2 on their back-cut.

  • If 2 is open, 5 should make the pass to them.

  • As this action is happening, 3 should go to the top of the key to defend against a fast break.

  • If 1 or 2 did not get the pass from 5, they should rotate out to the wing positions.

  • From here, you can run an isolation for 5, a two-man play for 2 and 5, or reset the offense.
