SET UP

HOW TO PLAY
Send a pass from 1 to 4. This pass indicates for 5 to relocateto the new ball-side block. 3 steps and catches the ball. 1 and 2 exchange positions [1]. After passing to the corner, 4 cuts through the lane. 2 moves to the ball-side wing as 1 shifts toward the top of the set. 5 posts up the defender [2]. 4 clears to the corner. 2 moves farther on the ball-side wing with 1 shifting high. 3 feeds 5 in the post and 5 completes his or her best postmove to score [3].

TECHNIQUE
Teach players to get as far and wide as possible. This pulls defenders away from the block. If the defenders do collapse, then the perimeter players are in perfect positions to receive a pass and shoot.
