Play Maryland’s simple handoff and tossback for 3
From Basketball Coach Weekly
The initial action has the point guard entering the ball and running off the pass as the backside movements demand attention… all while the play is a simple handoff and tossback for a 3.
Why use it
Maryland entered an important Big Ten matchup against Purdue as the No. 4 team in the country. The Terps used this Horns set to score a 3-pointer just three minutes and 16 seconds into the game.
Start in a typical Horns set with your posts at spots just higher than opposite elbows and guards in opposite corners with the point guard dribbling at the top.
