#1 Kansas Jayhawks

Four-Out Weave

Against powerhouse Kentucky in the Big 12-SEC Challenge, the Kansas Jayhawks used a bit of four-out weave action to get ball movement and player movement. (Thanks to @HalfCourtHoops for the diagrams!)

#3 Miami Hurricanes

Two Up Scissor Stagger Exit

As a wrinkle to their Two Up Scissor offense featured in their ACC regular season match-up against Virginia and in their second round win over Wichita State, the Miami Hurricanes used a staggered screen option from this “Chin-style” set.

#2 Villanova Wildcats

Villanova Pick-And-Roll Flare

Villanova combines ball screening and flare screening nicely in this entry to their four-out motion offense against Butler.
