I love basketball ❤️🏀. To me love means two things - sacrifice and being fascinated by the intricate details.

I have created this website to share my knowledge and passion for the game. I hope you find it beneficial. 

Using the re-screen to gain separation from the defender & create a "1 Side Back Side"

Recently the brilliant “The Basketball Podcast: Produced by Basketball Immersionfeatured an episode with host Chris Oliver and former New Zealand Tall Blacks (senior men’s national team) coach Tab Baldwin (currently the head coach of the Ateneo Blue Eagles, who play in the University Athletic Association of the Phillipines). Tab discussed (at the 54:45 mark) utilising a ‘first screen’ set to force the on ball defender to go under, gaining separation, and then re-screening under side so that the on ball defender now must go over. This sparked further ideas for me. I’ve elaborated on this concept and how it could be tied into the spacing of the three non-involved defenders in the diagram below:
