Read & React Quick Hitter: “Magic” Post Screen & Backscreen

This Read & React quick hitter applies multiple Read & React principles to create low post and perimeter back-screen scoring opportunities for your team.

The point-guard initiates the play with a speed dribble at the 3 person on the wing, sending the wing on a basket cut to screen for the post. Following this screen, the 3 person back-screens their way out to the perimeter. On the opposite side, the primary read is to feed the ball into the low post after 5 flashes, but if that’s not available 5 will back-screen her way out to the perimeter.

This action basically creates two plays in one:

  • First the post-screen & feed action
  • And then second, the double back-screen action on the perimeter
