Hawaii Rainbow Warriors Man Offense
Hawaii Michigan Back Door
This is a simple play out of the Two Guard Offense from Coach Ganot. As the point guard dribbles up the floor, 2 makes a cut up to the wing and looks to cut back door if his defender is extended out and trying to deny the wing entry pass. The spacing is great for the back door pass since all of the players are above the three point line leaving no help side defenders in the paint.
Hawaii Warrior Chicago Flare
Another set out of the Two Guard Offense, this play starts with a dribble handoff exchange between 1 and 2 on the right wing. 2 then drives right into a ball screen from 5 stepping out from the high post. 2 looks to turn the corner and score if he can. The weak side defenders are taken out of it by a flare screen from 3 for 4. 2 can look to 4 for a shot on the wing as well.
