#15 West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia runs multiple sets out of their “X” alignment with a two-guard front. These sets utilize the playmaking and screening ability of big man returnees Derek Culver and Oscar Tshiebwe.
X Lob Shuffle Stagger
#14 Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders will run primarily a motion offense but they like to use these “Stack” sets to get their guards going. They will be looking to get Mac McLung, their highly sought-after transfer from Georgetown, some open looks out of them.
Stack Rip Pindown
#13 Michigan State Spartans
Tom Izzo is a big fan of plays out of the “Elbow” set. These plays start their bigs out on the perimeter but often get them good looks off screens at the basket. [Video Playbook: MSU Transition Offense]
Elbow Away STS
Elbow Away Pindown
#12 Tennessee Volunteers
In both of these plays, the Volunteers start with a “Floppy” action, which is usually to get the ball to a guard. They then use secondary actions to pound the ball inside to their post players.
Floppy DHO High Low
#11 Creighton Bluejays
The Bluejays lose their leading scorer but return their next five to what should be a balanced scoring attack. They use both of these plays to allow their guards create plays for themselves or others off of screening actions.
