NCAA Tournament X’s & O’s – Oregon

By Wes Kosel

Here is a flex option used by Oregon in the first half against Oklahoma State. The Cowboys defended the action well, but it looks like a good set-up for future plays from the Ducks. The play starts in regular flex with a flex-screen and down-screen. Instead of continuous flex, 2 and 4 set a staggered screen for 3 on the weak side and 1 clears out to the corner. This play gives 5 the opportunity to take his man to the basket 1 on 1 or pass to 3 for a 3-point shot.
