Using Post Players, Zone Attack, Etc.
Clip 1: The 3out Double High Post morphs into a 4out Mid-Post formation. (See Flowing on the Read & React DVDs.) This is followed by a good example of the Post Passing Layer – specifically the X-Cut. One small correction for the screener: when #21 Kachine sets the X-Cut screen, she should then cut to the basket for 4 reasons:
- If the cutter off her screen is not open, then the post needs another passing option.
- One of the premises of the Read & React is to always, with every action, apply pressure to the rim. Make the defense guard North-South as well as East-West; set the X-Cut Screen and then cut to the basket for a lay-up.
- When Kachine vacates the spot, it initiates movement from the other two perimeter players (they must fill the open spots).
- If the shot is missed, Kachine will be inside to rebound.
