Cut #5 - Back cut
After the Catch, Square-Up and Shot-Fake (CSUSF)
from the previous sequence, 3 passes back to 1 and cuts directly to the wing. 3 must get both feet over the three-point line. Then 3 must do a catch fake to encourage the defence to over extend toward the ball, and then cut hard back to the basket for the lay-up pass from 1.
5 then passes to 1 and starts his series of 5 cuts.
You can work out your own rotation system. I generally leave 1 and 2 in place for two or three goes, and then let them call somebody else up to the guard spot.

NEVER FAKE A BACKCUT!
The key as to when to back cut is when the defense is over the 3-point line.
Offense must get both feet over the 3-point line before back cutting.
Coaching Points for 1
Use a pass fake when you want your receiver to back-cut to further encourage the defense to over extend toward the ball.
