He was an integral part of the back-to-back championship run that Duke made in 1991 and 1992.

Bobby Hurley – Arizona State Baseline Out Of Bounds Offense

BLOB Post Slip

This play starts in a box formation with 1 throwing the ball in, 5 and 4 on the blocks, and 2 and 3 on the elbows. This play can be used against a straight up coverage or switching defense, but it is the job of the point guard throwing the ball in to read the defense and make the correct pass. By putting a good shooter in the 2 spot, it forces x5 to help when 5 screens for 2 to cut to the wing. If x4 is hugging his man (like he is in the video above), 5 can slip easily to the rim for a layup. If x4 does help over, 1 can try to pass to 4 in the opposite short corner for a shot. Against a switch, the slip may be there as well since x2 will initially be above 5 on the screen.
