NCAA Tournament X’s & O’s – Butler

By Wes Kosel

Butler used this play after a timeout near the end of the game against Texas to get Dunham in a position to drive off of a staggered screen. The play starts with the point guard dribbling to the right as Dunham cuts off of a down-screen from 5. Once Dunham has the ball, 4 and 5 set up a staggered high ball-screen. In the game, Dunham turned down the staggered screen and drove to the basket forcing Texas to foul on the penetration.
