4 Out - High Post Screening Options

  • With this option, you are positioning your inside player at the free throw line or elbows (think Princeton offense).
  • This can really open up cutting to the rim since there is nobody on the block at all if you line up this way.
  • This is also a prime position for the inside player to set screens for cutters going to the rim after they pass. They are in a great spot to set ball screens as well.
  • You can also pass to this player and use them as a facilitator/passer from the high post spot.

  • 2 attacks off the dribble
  • 3 and 1 move in the direction of the drive
