#5 now has the ball, he can pass the ball into the post and run the same play or he can pass the ball to #2, who hits the post, and the 1-2 cut is on again. I always have the man who passes cut first. #4, and #3 interchange again.After running this offense a time or two then we use the two man plays on the weak side.

In the following diagram #2 and #4 run the inside screen series. #6 stays away from the play, but keeps in position to swing over and receive the ball if he is needed. He may also set a blind pick for #4 to shoot over, or drive by.

Up to now, I have used an inside, and an outside man as my cutters, however, in the past two years, I have added an option, where both inside men work as the cutters, and it has been highly successful for us. We start the play to the weak side the same as the last option, but instead of an interchange on the other side we have #3 set in.
