Iowa 4 Across BLOB - End of Game Need 3

Iowa ran this BLOB to try and get shooters open when they needed a 3.

The over cut and elevator action is tough for defenses to defend.

Phase 1
12345
  • The play starts with 2 and 3 cutting at the same time.
  • 3 cuts over the top of screens by 4 and 5.
  • If 3 is open for a shot, they should take it.
  • 2 cuts to the rim.
Phase 2
12345
  • If 3 does not have the shot, 2 cuts in the middle of the elevator screen by 4 and 5.
  • 4 and 5 close the "elevator doors" to not allow x2 to get through.
  • 3 passes to 2 for the open shot.
