|Setup: O1 is at the point.
Set the stack down low, with your best three point shooters at the O2 and O3 spots, and your best post players at the O4 and O5 positions.
Running the play:
Your outstanding point guard (O1), will try to drive on his/her defender. O1 may create his/her own shot, or as the defense collapses, dishes off to an open teammate. This could be an open post player, or an open corner 3-point shot. O2 flares to the three-point line after the screen. O3 moves out to the top and is the prevent man on defense.
Start with a low stack with the post players inside (see Diagram A). O2 will split out to the three-point arc and receive the pass from O1. Meanwhile, O4 sets a screen for O5. O5 cuts around the screen to the ball-side low post looking for the pass from O2, and the shot.
The Michigan play could be adapted to the 1-4 low stack set, by flashing both low posts to the elbows.
