I received a few follow-up e-mails on my last post “The Read and React Press Break” with questions about different options out of the Read and React Offense. As I was replying, I realized that there are probably a number of Coaches running the R&R who could benefit from the information, so I want to focus my next couple of posts on R&R. This article shows a few different set plays that you can run out of the 5-out motion. Obviously, to use these plays, you don’t necessarily have to run the R&R offense and could implement these sets with any style team and just use them for what they are, set plays.
I’ve included a play for a Pick & Roll, 3 Point Opportunity, and a Hi/Lo option for the posts.
My next article will focus on drills used in practice to emphasize R&R movements.
