“Wildcat” Under-The-Basket Play
(1-4 Low Vs. Man)

By: Craig Sikes, Former Head Girls Coach, Christian Schools of Springfield, Mo.

This play is run from a 1-4 low set with 3 taking the ball out under the basket.

 

DIAGRAM 1: This play is run from a 1-4 low set with 3 taking the ball out under the basket. On the slap of the ball, 5 sets a block-to-block screen for 2. 3 looks to 2 as the first option and then looks for 5 opening up to the ball after setting the screen.1 fades to the the top on the strong side as 2 comes off the screen.

DIAGRAM 2: 2 does not stop at the block. Instead, if 2 doesn’t get the ball, he or she continues to the corner and sets a backscreen for 4 (this leaves 5 temporarily isolated in the post). 4 rolls around 2’s backscreen    and cuts to the basket looking for the inbound pass.

DIAGRAM 3: If 4 doesn’t receive the ball on the flash to the basket, he or she breaks to the top and sets a screen for 1, who breaks to the ball. 3 passes to 2 in the corner and 2 looks to hit 1 on the break to the basket (this is usually one of the best options on this play) or shoots the 
3-point shot.

DIAGRAM 4: If 1 can’t receive the pass from 2, or if 3 can’t inbound the ball to 2 in the corner, then 4 becomes the safety outlet at the top.
