Washington’s offense is built on constant motion and ‘non-traditional screens’ to get open shots. I categorize staggered, double and fade screens as some of these ‘non-traditional’ screens, as they are less widely used than down screens and ball screens and are often only used when they are scripted in a set play. Washington has a set play they run that has a shooter come off a double screen for a three point shot. In the Pac-10 final against Arizona, they ran this play twice and got two different looks from this set.
Three point shot
Washington runs this set in the first half and gets a three point shot out of the set. What we see is Justin Holiday flashing to the high post to receive the ball while Scott Suggs uses the double screen to get the open shot on the perimeter.
