Basketball Offense - 3-2 Motion Offense Options

From the Coach's Clipboard Basketball Playbook, @ First read "Motion Offense". So you want flexibility and want to vary your offensive attack, while maintaining the 3out-2in as your basic set. Here are some simple plays to run off the 3-2 set. These do not necessarily have to be called as set plays, but can be taught to the players as various types of screening options to use within the general motion offensive scheme. Some of these plays can be run right or left. "I Up" To change to a 1-3-1 set, call "1 up" and the weak-side low post player moves to the high post. If the ball is on the point, O5 moves to the high post.

"2-Up" Want to show a 1-4 stack set, call "2 up" and both posts move to the elbows. Now you can run the 1-4 stack offense and plays.

"4-Down" Call "4 down" to run a simple low stack play such as this. O1 drives and tries to create his own shot, or dishes off to a teammate. O2 and O3 set picks for O4 and O5. O2 flares out for a three-point option. O3 moves out on top as prevent man on defense.

"3-Cross" Want to overload a zone (in this case the right side)? Call "3-cross" to have O3 makes a cut to the hoop, and then out to the opposite corner. Now the right side of the floor is over-loaded.

"3-Corner" The defense is showing a 1-3-1 zone and you want to go to a two-guard front. Call "3 corner" to have your O3 slide down to his own corner, and O1 and O2 move over into a two-guard set.

"4-Out" You can change to a 4-out, 1-in set by calling something like "4 Out to John", where John becomes the inside post player. See "4-out, 1-in motion offense".

"5" If you have good quick guards in the game, run the open post (5-Out) offense. Call this "5", rather than "5-Out". Once I called "5-out" and the ref charged me with a time-out, thinking I had yelled "time-out" instead of "5Out"... so just call this option "5". See "Open Post Offense".

Wing to Low Post Motion. Downscreen & Curl. Wing sets a down-screen for the low post, who curls around the screen for pass from O1. After setting the screen, O3 can seal for the inside position and the pass from O1, or flare out to the short corner or wing for a pass for an outside shot.

Back-Screen. Low post sets a back-screen on the same side wing defender. The wing cuts backdoor for the pass from O1. The low post can also seal and roll for a pass from O1.

Post-Post Motion Option #1 O4 sets pick for O5 who cuts off the screen for the pass from O1.

Option #2 Same play as option 1-- in this case the defenders made a "switch" and the X4 defender picks up O5. Reading this, O5 takes the defender out to the short corner. O4 has inside position after screening and sealing the defender, and gets the pass from O1 (who dribbles a little to the right to set up a better passing angle).
