A great inbounds offense can give your team the opportunity to get quick scores due to the great execution of these situations.  They can also be run to set up other situations whether it is a half-court play or to set up another inbounds play off of a time out.  I cannot begin to tell you how many more games your team will win by executing these special situations, but I can tell you that your team will be well prepared to be in a position to win more games.

This article will present baseline and sideline inbounds plays that can be run to give your team a chance to be successful.  I will also cover some special situations to get the ball inbounds and even some plays at the end of the clock that you can use to win games late.

Baseline Out of Bounds

In the baseline out of bounds plays presented in this diagram, all the plays will be from a 1-4 low set.  #3 is the inbounds passer with #4 as the ball-side post and #5 as the help-side post.  #1 is the pressure release in the ball-side corner and #2 as a receiver in the help-side corner.

All of the inbounds plays have reads that are automatics based on the way the defense defends the formation.  #5 will step in to the ball and present himself as a receiver before every play.  If the defense does not respect this, the ball will be inbounded to him and he scores (Diagram 1).

Once the defense respects this, we look to #4 to make the next move.  If #4 is being denied but not fronted, he will step to the ball-side corner before turning and screening for #5.  The ball can be passed to #5 for the lay-up (Diagram 2) or to #4 on the slip to the basket (Diagram 3).

Diagram 3

If at any moment a passing lane is open to the help-side corner, we will pass the ball to #2 (Diagram 4).  This is a high-risk pass that requires an absolutely open passing lane and an open for a three-point shot.

Diagram 4

If at anytime the ball cannot be inbounded to #2, #4, or #5, we will look to throw the ball to #1 on a pressure release (Diagram 5).  We want to get the ball up to #1 around the ball-side wing and have him run a set half-court play.
