This is a simple ball screen basketball play. However, to make a play like this successful it is all about setting a good ball screen and making the defense scramble. If you don’t put the defense at a disadvantage on the high ball screen at the start of the play then the play will not work. The ball handler also needs to make post defender have to help and hedge on the ball screen because this will make them get out of position to handle the roll man.
