Double Up

Audra Smith

 

Objectives

  • To get a layup for 5 or an immediate jumper for 3.
  • To provide multiple scoring options.

When to Use

  • Against a man-to-man defense at any point during a game.
  • With a dominant post player and good perimeter scorers.
  • Against opponents that have trouble defending screens.

Key Personnel

This play requires three good scorers who set up and read screens effectively. Your 5 must be able to set good screens.

Execution

  1. 3 sets a strong back screen for 5, who comes off looking for the layup. 3 then comes off a screen from 4, looking for a jumper on the wing (figure 1).
  2. If neither opportunity exists, 3 reverses the ball to 4, who swings the ball to 1 coming up from the corner (figure 2).
  3. 2 has the option of heading to the top of the key off a stagger screen by 3 and 4 or to the opposite corner off 5’s single screen (figure 3).

Point of Emphasis

All three aspects of screening are critical to the success of this play: the technique of setting the screen, the timing of the screen, and using the screen.
