5 Out - Post Up Actions

There are a few ways to get post up opportunities in the 5-Out offense:

  • After you basket cut, duck in and seal your defender and try to get a post feed from a teammate
  • After a dribble at, go backdoor and then duck in and seal your defender
Phase 1

  • 1 passes to 3
  • 1 cuts to the rim
  • Instead of emptying out, they attempt to seal their defender and try to get a post feed
Phase 2

  • This is what it looks like when 1 is posting up
Phase 3

  • If 1 can't receive the pass, everyone rotates like usual
Phase 4

  • Another option is to use a dribble-at to post up
  • 3 dribbles at 5
  • 5 cuts to the rim, but then turns to seal their defender and get a post feed
Phase 5

  • 3 looks to pass to 5 in the post
