Too many teams want to set up a 3-point play late in the game when trailing by 3 points when a quick 2-pointer allows you a better chance to score and extend the game. MORE
Double Screen Corner 3-Pointer
Run your shooter off a low double screen and set another screen at the elbow to ensure an open corner 3-point look.
WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL 3-POINTER PLAY
Low double screens force defenders out of position and away from their responsibilities. This creates time for a shooter to come free in the corner.
Start in a 1-4 low (I’ve seen Florida run this with the right wing a bit higher as shown). Your shooter is located on the right-side block. Your best screener is positioned on the left block.
HOW TO PLAY
The left-block player moves out and sets a screen for the corner player. The corner moves into the lane . The corner continues through the lane and screens for the right-side block player, who receives another screen from the original screener. The point guard dribbles left . The original screener sets his third screen of the set by coming high. He picks off the point guard’s defender as the pass goes to the corner. The weak-side players rotate .
The left-block player is key as he sets three screens. The low double screen almost acts as a wall sealing defenders away from the corner. The point guard shows patience and doesn’t dribble left until the double screen occurs, otherwise he gives away where the play is going.
