Tad Boyle Colorado Buffaloes Dribble Handoff Actions
High DHO Pitch
The guards start in a stack underneath the post players. 2 gets the ball on the wing and 4 flashes to the high post. 4 gets the ball and dribbles at 3 to give him the ball with a dribble handoff. 3 drives in the lane looking to score or kick out.
Horns DHO Duck In
1 dribbles off of the horns ball screen from 4. 4 rolls and 5 steps out to the top of the key. If 5 gets the ball, he turns to dribble at 3 on the left wing to give 3 the ball with a dribble handoff.
Weave to High Roll Replace
The handoff actions are used in a weave between the guards on the perimeter. Once 3 gets the ball, 5 sets a high ball screen as 3 comes off of the handoff from 2. The weave action can lull the defense to sleep, and the ball screen can be set at any time in the play.
