(HoopDirt.com Starting Five by FastModel Sports – Northern Iowa Set Plays by Wes Kosel was first published by HoopDirt.com)
Here are five set plays from Northern Iowa Head Coach Ben Jacobson. Jacobson’s teams are always interesting to watch. He runs a ton of different actions and his players really understand how to play in his offense.
The point guard gets to create in this play with three players overloaded in the right corner. This works great for a left-handed guard.
3 cuts off of a screen from 5 and then Panthers then go into a ball screen / DHO / ball screen combo action.
4 and 5 set up as if they are setting a staggered horns screen, but as soon as 1 clears 5, 4 makes a shallow roll out to the right wing.
Once again, the point guard has the freedom in this play to create off of the dribble. 4 can move as necessary to get open inside.
1 uses a high ball screen from 5, but if it isn’t there he turns and uses the screen again.
