NCAA Tournament X’s & O’s – San Diego State

By Wes Kosel

San Diego State opened up the game with this play and forced St. John’s to foul at the rim. The play starts with a pass entry to the wing then a loop by the point guard down to the rim and back out to the perimeter. 4 gets the ball in the short corner and looks for an opening to make a move for a shot. If 4 doesn’t have anything, he looks to pass to 2 cutting off of a flare screen from the point guard or hit 5 diving to the basket.
