HoopDirt.com’s Starting Five Presented by FastModel Sports
By: Wes Kosel / HoopDirt.com Contributor
This week we look at five sideline out-of-bounds plays from Indiana Hoosiers Head Coach Tom Crean. Crean has always had great x’s & o’s and offensive schemes. These plays show the variety of attacks that Crean uses offensively.
Indiana – SLOB to Horns Twist
The Hoosiers use a “twist” action with two ball screens set for the point guard.
Indiana – SLOB Pin Motion
Crean uses a variety of down screen / cross screen actions to make the defense move. This play also uses up quite a bit of time.
Indiana – SLOB Orlando Quick
This quick hitter gets an open shot on the wing, but the guard coming off of the “Orlando” action could also look to score off of the ball screen.
Indiana – SLOB Empty Post Up
This misdirection play is used to get the ball to 5 posting up inside. The ball screen at the top of the key could also be a great pick and pop opportunity.
Indiana – SLOB Knicks Repeat
This two-man action has the five man set repeat step up ball screens for the point guard. The repeat action can allow the players to get a feel for how the defense is going to guard the ball screen.
