#25 Michigan Wolverines

Pistol Post: Michigan uses this set, designed out of a Pistol Set, to force the defense into guarding quick multiple actions. Michigan forces the defense into giving up a post iso by utilizing the versatile skillset of center Jon Teske and a flare screen on the backside.

#24 Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Iverson Fist: Rutgers puts the defense in a tough position with this side PnR set. This set is a great way to confuse a defense on who is tagging the roller. Great movement with consecutive multiple options.

#23 Ohio State Buckeyes

PnP Swing Post: OSU uses this simple set to get EJ Lidell a post iso touch. Lidell posted an excellent PPP of 1.096 on Post Ups during the ’19-20 season. This set is simple yet very effective if you have a player that is excels playing with their back to the basket. The counters and options, such as split cuts, are endless.

#22 UCLA Bruins

Iverson Wiper: UCLA runs a nice quick-hitting misdirection set to get one their best offensive players a shot. They use an Iverson cut by the point guard followed by a quick drive and a wiper screen by the big with shooter Jake Kyman coming back to the ball. Kyman produced 1.07 PPP to lead the Bruins last season, and putting him in the 93% percentile overall according to Synergy.

#21 Florida State Seminoles

Drag Back SPNR: FSU runs a nice multiple action set into a SPNR. The multiple actions confuse the defense which results in a wide open look for Wyatt Wilkes, who produced a 1.364 PPP last season on spot up situations. This would be an easy ATO set to implement with your team to get a great look for three-point range.

Swing Through SLOB: This cutting action vs a zone puts a ton of pressure on the zone to communicate and rotate. Simple, yet highly effective set that showcases FSU’s long athletic wings that can score on the interior.
