4-Across Double Screen Sets Up Shot

Place your bigger posts on the ball-side of the 4-across set so they can screen for the two shooters and create an open jumper.


As defenses jump to stop the initial shooter curling around a double screen, sneak the second shooter around a second double screen and create an open shot.


Start in a typical 4-across formation with the posts occupying the two spots on the ball side and your shooters on the weak side of the set.


4 and 5 turn toward the shooters, step out and set a double screen as the inside shooter (3) curls around the screen [1]. 2 fakes the pass to 3, who then clears to the opposite side. 4 and 5 take another step out and set a double screen for 1. 1 curls around the double screen and comes free on the right side [2]. 4 and 5 roll to the hoop. 3 boxes out. 1 steps to the ball and receives the pass from 2, then shoots in rhythm [3].



The first option is a pass to 1 for the jumper but 2 keeps an eye on 4 and 5 rolling to the hoop as one of them could be open as the defense attempts to recover. 2 and 3 must sell the pass fake. Have 2 make a hard fake with 3 rushing toward the ball with hands in a ready position.
