Create Short-Corner Jumper Vs. Zone

When a zone is thrown at your team, run this nonverbal play utilizing ball reversal and a low screen to manufacture a high-percentage jump shot

WHY USE IT
Teams typically toss the ball around the perimeter when facing a zone defense. Instruct players to attack deep in the zone for scoring opportunities.

SET UP
You’re in a standard set with guards on opposite wings and forwards on opposite blocks. Once the defense sets up in a 1-3-1 zone, run this play. This is a nonverbal call. Players know when the defense moves into a 1-3-1, you run this play. It eliminates the scrambling taking place when a defense goes zone.

HOW TO PLAY
The point dribbles at the right-wing player. The right wing flashes to the high post then to the opposite side. The left wing relocates to the top [1]. Upon reaching the rightwing area, the point guard reverses the ball with a pass to the top, then another pass is made to the opposite wing. As this is happening, the right-side post cuts hard off a screen the left post is setting on the bottom defender [2]. The pass is made to the cutting post for an easy baseline jumper [3].

TECHNIQUE
The cutting post needs to wait for the ball reversal to begin before relocating. If he moves too early, the low defender has time to react.
