In the horns set, the point guard will have the ball at the top of the key out near half-court. The big men are also at the top of the key, but on the lane, lines extended, and the wings are spaced out to the side.

A couple of excellent actions that you can run out of the horns set is either a dribble handoff from the post player or a dribble at and backdoor cut by the wing player. For this to work, the wing player must read their defender, set them up, and then make the correct cut. With the proper spacing, this is a tough basketball play for the defense to guard.
As mentioned, there are some really good offensive sets that you can have your team run out of the horns offense, but a few keys need to be stressed before running them. The first point of focus will be on the entry pass catch (if there is one). On this pass, you want your players to catch the ball in a scoring position and not way out past the 3 point line. If the wing pass is being denied, the ball handler can dribble the wing player and then take their spot.
The next point of focus is going to be spacing and timing. You never want one defender to be able to guard two players. So the wing players need to stay wide and always be a threat to score. For the timing aspect of the play, don’t make the receiver wait on the pass. As soon as they pop open or come off a screen, they need to receive the ball.
