Elite Hoops Basketball Playset: 1-4 HIGH

Posted by Brandon Chappell | Friday, November 2, 2012 | Category: |

Why reinvent the wheel? Most basketball plays either begin or end the exact same. The coach’s job is to find ways to deceive plays that are ultimately the same play. In today’s blog, the play will begin as a “new” playset but will end as a previous posted playset. See if you can figure it out.

1-4 High is the name of this play. Player 1 has the ball at the top of the key, and players 2-5 are lined up evenly across the free throw line extended. Players 2 and 3 are on each wing, while players 4 and 5 are on each side of the elbow. Player 1 passes the ball to player 4. Once player 4 has the ball, player 2 will cut backdoor for a layup. If denied, player 1 will come for a ball handoff by player 4. Now, players 3 and 5 will set a double screen for player 2 to come off the opposite side. Simultaneously, player 1 will dribble towards the top of the key and player 4 will set a single screen for player 3. At this point the play should start looking familiar. Player 1 passes to player 2 then screens away for player 3. Player 5 will post up on the block and player 4 will flash to the high post.

Figured it out yet? If you haven’t, the play started as 1-4 High but now has transformed into the previous playset “Stack”. 1-4 High can be used as an entry or a total playset with different options. Stay tuned for my advanced version of 1-4 High.
