An inside look at the XsOs of one of the WNBA’s most exciting teams, the Las Vegas Aces, to kick off the season which begins on May 24.
The Las Vegas Aces use a core set of Baseline Out of Bounds (BLOB) and Sideline Out of Bounds (SLOB) plays that allow their face up post players and slashers to get to the rim. These plays are designed to mirror their half court offense and create advantages for their best players. Take a look at two examples below.
