Underneath Inbound Stack

Create an in-close, mid-range and long-distance scoring option from a simple lane-line stack set by utilizing a few off-the-ball screens.

WHY USE THIS MULTIPLE SCORING  BASKETBALL PLAY
Stack looks are difficult to defend, especially when the stacked players scatter in different directions. Use a stack to get the defense on
the move, spread out the defenders and create multiple scoring opportunities.

SET UP
Three players align on the lane line in front of the inbounder. The final player is situated near the top.

HOW TO PLAY
The middle player cuts across the lane. The top stack player moves high to screen for the solo player [1]. After setting the high screen, the screener uses a high screen from the middle stack player and moves to the weak-side short corner. After setting the high screen, that player rolls back toward the hoop. The player originally at the top comes low and screens for the front-of-line player, who pops to the strong-side corner [2]. The inbounder now has three scoring options: a layup to the player rolling to the hoop; a mid-range jumper from the player in the weak-side short corner; or a 3-pointer from the strong-side deep corner [3].

TECHNIQUE
A lot of defensive focus is on the solo player at the top and he’s the only person who isn’t a scoring threat.
