Mark Gottfried North Carolina State University Blobs by Greg Brown Blobs by Greg Brown
These are two Baseline out of Bounds plays I picked up while watching South Florida play N.C. State. Coach Gottfried has always ran great “special teams” plays to get his scorers the ball. Both of these plays offer some misdirection and multiple options. Both of these plays can be ran against man to man defense. N.C. State went on to win this game on 59-56 and without some success on these “special teams” plays the outcome may have been different.

This play can be ran with your best shooter taking the ball out of bounds and allowing him to be the decoy. 2 takes the ball out of bounds, 5 breaks to the ball side corner, 2 passes to 5. 4 screens across for 1, 2 passes to 1. 3 sets a screen for 2 cutting to the wing, 1 dribbles towards 2, 5 and 4 set a window screen for 3, 1 passes to 3 for the shot.
This play could be ran with different personnel in different spots to meet your needs.
Mark Gottfried North Carolina State University BLOB #2
This play can be ran with your best shooter lined up directly in front of the inbounder. 1 enters the ball to the 5, 1 immediately takes a handoff from 5. 4 and 3 set a staggered screen for 2 cutting to the wing, 1 passes to 2. 4 and 3 immediately set a staggered screen for 5 cutting to the ball side block.
This play is great against man to man defense and offers multiple options.
