Posts Tagged ‘4 high set’
Today I am going to break down the 4 high set that Michigan State used several times per game last season. There are several different options out of this set, which can be called ahead of time or can be improvised after the initial action. Let’s take a look.
The first option is for the guard to set a cross screen for the big man, then receive a down screen he can use for a jumper. Watch as Korie Lucious sets a cross screen for Derrick Nix, which Nix uses to try to get free for a post up. Lucious then receives a down screen and while Shelvin Mack was caught up in all the action, he gets free for a jump shot.
If Lucious was not open, Nix was still an option for a post up. However, thanks to the screen by Delvon Roe and the great use by Lucious, an open 3 is buried by MSU.
