Read & React Version of Split Action

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.
