Here are four corner pin-down screen plays from Wofford Terriers Head Coach Mike Young. Young has been the head coach at Wofford for 13 seasons, and including his years as an assistant he has been there 26 seasons. At the 2015 NABC Clinic in Indianapolis, Coach Young went over spacing concepts with setting wide pin-down screens in the corners. He emphasized that the screener must make it all the way down to the corner to set the screen, and the cutter must wait for the screener to be set. To ensure this is done in practice, Coach Young puts down tape where he wants the screener to be set. He calls this area the “Patriot Box”. Having the box taped on the floor makes it easy for the screener and cutter to time the perfect pin-down screen. In addition, it makes it easier for coaches to communicate whether or not the screen was executed properly.
