Zone Drag Duck

This post play is used against a 2-3 zone defense and starts with 4 players on the perimeter and the 5 man posting up inside. 1 passes to 4 who passes to 2 on the right wing. 4 then cuts through to the left corner and 3 flashes to right elbow. 2 then passes to 1 who drags the ball left pulling 3 out of the high post. On the pass back to 3, x2 has to step out and guard the ball. 5 looks to duck in on x5 inside and x3 will be guarding 2 in the corner. If x3 is out towards the corner, 3 looks to pass inside to 5. If x3 is preventing the post pass, 2 should be open in the corner for a shot.
