Cade Cunningham, Oklahoma State Cowboys
Go-to set: Inbounder Post BLOB
With Cunningham’s combination of size and skill, it’s no wonder there wasn’t many players at the college level who could stop him. OSU often posted him as he almost always had a smaller playing defending him. Placing Cunningham as the inbounder for baseline under situations was an easy way to get him on the block.
Evan Mobley, USC Trojans
Go-to set: Side PNR Slip
NBA scouts have been dreaming of adding Mobley’s athleticism to their rosters for over a year. No matter which team selects him, no doubt they’ll put him in PNR situations like this to utilize his screening/popping/rolling abilities.
Jalen Green, NBA G League Ignite
Go-to set: Lob ATO
Toss the ball toward the rim and let Green go get it. He shoots a decent enough percentage from beyond the arc that defenses must respect it, thus opening up the lob opportunity if/when they overplay him. You’d expect his shooting ability to only improve in the NBA, which would only make a set like this more effective.
Jalen Suggs, Gonzaga Bulldogs
Go-to set: Ghost Screen ATO
Mark Few often called up looks like this to take advantage of Suggs’ elite vision and passing. A simple ghost screen is all it takes to confuse the defense. Let Suggs cook from there! He almost always makes the right decision.
Scottie Barnes, Florida State Seminoles
Go-to set: Slot DHO
When you have an athlete like Barnes, you don’t complicate your offense. Give him a quick DHO and have teammates space and clear the lane. He’ll do the rest from there.
