Black-Hawk 5-Out Continuity Offense
By: Brian Rea
Black-Hawk is a quick continuity addition to your 5-Out Open Post arsenal or it can be a good supplement to your regular motion offense. It holds true to the rules of motion, but tries to use the point cutter as a brush screener for the wing. Use this simple continuity motion as a supplement to your own offense, or use it as your main offense to get some great movement and great scoring opportunities. . . . Keep Reading
4-Out, 1-In Iso
By: Brian Rea
This is a play to isolate a player from a 4 Out-1 In set. It gets you some misdirection away from the iso-side, a ball screen, and a staggered double. In a 4-Out style transition, it can be great right out of transition if you have an athletic trailer. It can also be used as a quick hitter to get an opportunity for your best player. This play is effective and works on any level. . . . Keep Reading
