Offense 1-4
Playname: Overload
1 dribbles to either side after calling "O"

2 and 3 step-slide with 2 going to the corner and 3 step-sliding around arc keeping good spacing.  The opposite post (4) crosses over and post up on the block.

Option 1:
Our first option will be to see if we can hit 4 on the cut or 5 in a solid post-up position on the defense.  If we cannot get the ball inside or the 4 or 5 kick it back out, we now have the option of a shot or to start reversing the ball.
Option 2:
When the ball goes from the wing to the top of the key, the 5 will screen the middle defender in the zone as 4 cuts. If 4 does not get the ball for the easy shot, then 4 continues on to the high post. After making the solid pick, the 5 will finally release and go to the low block.
Option 3:
If the pass is not made to the middle, then the 3 will start dribbling over to the other wing with the 1 following by step-sliding and filling 3's spot. The 2 will cut to the opposite corner as soon as he sees the 3 taking the ball to the other wing. This now sets us up in the overload on the other side and we continue running our cuts and rotation until we score.
