Just Hoops Highlight Series: 3-Man Ball-Screen Reads

3-Man Ball-Screen Reads:
Coach Nathan: 3-man ball-screens are a staple in today’s game because you have multiple threats. The ball-handler must execute coming off the screen “shoulder to hip” & attack the screener’s defender in order to “engage 2.” Advanced guards see the floor to answer: who is helping on the roll? Defenses can help out of the ball-side corner or the weak-side corner. This is a great example of Texas helping with the weak-side corner & defending the shake action (player lifting to the wing from the ball-side corner). Collin Sexton engages 2 players with the ball which forces Matt Coleman to “hold” long enough to create a closeout situation.
