The X-Cut is an East-West screening option available to anyone who feeds the post. This stands in stark contrast to what is currently done in our basketball community. Most teams feed the post and then stand and watch – almost forcing the post to make a one-on-one move to score whether he or she wants to or not.
However, using the X-Cut when feeding the post immediately engages 3 players and opens up 13 multi-layered actions that you can drill with your players. Learning these 13 options from game clips is the closest you can come to learning from experience.
Because of the initial East-West action on the perimeter, the post has time and space for 1on1 moves if an advantage is gained. 1on1 is a choice – not the primary action. Since the X-Cut can be used at the high post, the post player can face up and use perimeter skills. If nothing is open, the post can power dribble into a pick & roll. This kind of flexibility allows you to play anyone in the post!
The player who feeds the post becomes The Screener and is rewarded for feeding the post with 6 scoring options.
We call the receiver of the screen The Shooter and he/she has 4 options based on defensive reads.
After you watch this course, you’ll be tempted to turn this action into your main offense. Whether you do or not, I promise that you’ll never look at feeding the post the same way again! The X-Cut can double or triple the points you get every time you pass the ball inside! Join us and break the boring tradition of “feed-the-post-stand-and-watch.” Your players and fans will thank you!
After our first two State Championships I felt that we needed to change our approach to the game to be more unpredictable and dynamic. We adopted the Read and React Offense exclusively after attending a clinic with Rick. Better Basketball training has been one of the most important keys to our team's successes and the future successes of our program moving forward. If you're looking for the most effective way to build a championship winning team, this is it.
