5 Out - Dribble Penetration Rotations

When a play drives all players rotate to fill the spots

Phase 1
54321
  • 2 drives right into the paint - therefore, everyone else rotates to the right
  • 5, since there is nowhere on the right to go to, cuts baseline. This may look like it causes traffic but it actually provides solid backdoor opportunities and clears out space for 2 to get to the other side of the rim
  • 3, 1, and 4 all cut right
Phase 2
54321
  • If 2 kicks it out, the offense then goes back to 5-Out Rules
  • 4 and 5 fill up to the next spots
Phase 3
54321
  • This leaves one spot for 2 to fill into
  • Now, the offense continues
