Read & React Quick Hitter: 4-Out 1-In Flex Cut For Layup

This Read & React quick hitter incorporates a flex cut and backscreen into the offense out of a 4-Out, 1-In alignment.

The primary option is for the person flashing off the screen into the paint for a layup; this quick hitter then offers a secondary option as the perimeter player downscreens to “screen the screener” often creating an open jumpshot at the elbow.
