Today's Theme:  Two Sideline OB Plays

Here are two nifty sideline OB plays.

"Line 1" - use this as a standard sideline play or a half-court, last second buzzer-beater play.  O4 starts low and sprints up to receive the pass from O3.  O1 screens for O2 and after screening, cuts hard to the back-side wing for a quick pass from O4 and the shot, or lay-up, depending on how much time is left.  After inbounding the ball, O3 cuts to the left wing and could also get the pass and last-second shot.  If both wings are covered, O4 may have to take the shot.  If time is not a factor, O2 is our safety pass in the back-court.

"Line-2" - this play also uses a "line" set, and tries to get a lob pass to O2 going to the hoop.  You can change this to fit your own personnel.  O1 cuts into the back-court as our safety outlet.  O2 cuts hard around O5 and O4.  O3 makes the lob pass over the top to O2 cutting to the hoop.  After O2 cuts, O5 moves to the ball-side wing area and O4 cuts straight toward the ball.  If the pass goes to O1, O5 or O4, then just set up in your usual half-court offense.
