With VCU shocking almost all of us to go from the First Four to the Final Four, I wanted to highlight how they utilize ball screens to get Jamie Skeen open for three point shots. Let’s look at two different sets, one with Skeen not setting the ball screen and one with him as the screener.

This play is going to work if teams hedge on ball screens, with the help defender rotating over to take away the roll man. We saw Pitt use this type of defense in a Big East game earlier in the season (read here).
