"UCLA" is a play ran by many teams throughout the NCAA. This set is structured but gives players the opportunity to play out of it if they see an opening. Also, if the defense breaks down or is not ready, it is possible to get a quick layup. The key to this play is to hit a body on every screen. This will allow players the space they need and set up the next action. At the end of the play the players are in a 3 out 2 in set where they can go into their motion.

In order to get a player an open look or create shots for teammates, a play needs to be designed with several options if the first does not go according to plan. "Blue Jay" is a set that contains a number of staggered screens and ball screens to free up people for open looks. If all fails, the ball can be entered to the post and players can play off of that.
