INBOUNDS OFFENSE AND PLAYS
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
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).
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.
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.
