X’s & O’s – Colorado College Set Plays by Wes Kosel

Below are a few set plays that we used at Colorado College during the 2014-2015 season in a game against Dubuque (Iowa). We use a variety of sets to create scoring opportunities. In the video below you will see a zone quick hitter, a baseline out-of-bounds play, and a secondary option.

Colorado College – Zone Post Up

In this play, our post sets an up-screen for the wing against the zone defense then steps out to the wing to get the pass. 5 then looks to pass inside to 3 posting up and makes a cut to the rim. The other players fill around 5 on the post cut.

Colorado College – BLOB Rub Post Cross

In this play, there are two stacks (one at the block and one at the opposite elbow). The guards rub off of the post players out to the wings then 5 sets a cross screen for 4.


Colorado College – Cyclone

This play, taken from a set we saw from Coach Hoiberg when he was at Iowa State, starts with the point guard pushing the wing into a back-screen for the trailing post. After setting the screen, 3 steps out for a ball-screen and looks to drive with a pick and roll/replace option.
