1-4 high set basketball plays will start in a formation with 4 players across the free-throw line extended (a player on each wing and each elbow) and the ball handler at the top of the key. The big men or post players are usually on the elbows, and the guards are out on the wings. You need to make sure that the wing players have good spacing because if they are being overplayed, the backdoor cut is a great option.
All of the basketball plays come with a video clip of the play and written instructions breaking down the play and the focus points when running it. That way, you will be able to maximize the play’s effectiveness and help your team get better looks at the basket.
There are a few things that need to be stressed when running these plays as a basketball coach. Firstly, all of the players on the floor need to be a threat to score because if not, their defender will be able to be in the help side. This will disrupt entry passes and kill the offensive spacing. Secondly, when one of the four players catches the entry pass from the ball handler, they want to be in a scoring position. Don’t let the defense push the receiver of the entry pass way out past the three-point line. This means that the player receiving the ball needs to walk their defender down before popping out to catch the pass.
