#MotionOffenseTips – Outside Cuts

By Randy Sherman

Using FastDraw as an educational tool, these two videos are tutorials on the fundamentals of the most basic element of motion offense – the downscreen.

The four basic cuts of motion offense can be place into two categories and these videos detail the two outside cuts (Out Cut & Straight Cut).

Coaching and teaching points include:

  • Alignment
  • Spacing
  • Screening Angles
  • Terminology
  • Reading the Defense
  • Much More!
