Tom Crean Indiana Hoosiers Box Set Plays
Box Weak Flare
This play is a quick hitter to get a three point shot on the right wing. The action on the left side of the floor takes the attention of the defenders, so as 1 brings in his defender towards the top of the key he can set him up to get caught in the flare screen by 4. 5 can also look to make a play to the rim as well and try to draw in the x2 defender.
Box Reverse Shuffle Stagger
1 passes to 2 stepping out as 5 sets a back screen for 3. Once the ball is reversed, 4 sets a shuffle screen for 2 and 4 and 5 set a staggered screen for 3 in the corner.
Box Flare Elevator
1 passes to 5 stepping out and 2 moves out to the corner. Once 5 has the ball, 4 sets a flare screen for 1. The ball can be directly thrown to 1 or reversed through 4. Once 1 has the ball, 3 cuts up the lane through and elevator screen from 5 and 4 at the top of the key.
