Youth Basketball Plays - Out of Bounds Plays - Low Box Play



Once the players understand the timing and execution, this play almost always results in a close shot at the basket or a trip to the foul line for two free throws. The screen seal and pass timing are the critical points to perfect.

The post player nearest the ball is the one to break and set a screen for the other low post player. As soon as the other post player cuts around the screen and contact is made with his defenseman, the screener must pivot 180 degrees and seal out that defensive player from the inbounding pass. The passer throws the ball as the post player is beginning his pivot. This is the first option.

The post player furthest from the ball MUST wait until the screen is set. The most common error is for both post players to break at the same time. Once the screen is set, the far post player cuts around the screen and looks for a pass (second option).

The two outside players simply cross to the other's wing position and look for a pass. This is the third option and usually does not result in a shot, but may be the best recourse if the inside play breaks down.
