I found this on one of Creighton Burns’ newsletters.

It is a simple play that Butler University ran against a zone when Brad Stevens was there.

This is a quick hitter that you can save for a time when you need a basket.

It is probably not going to work more than once or twice each game.

That forces x4 to step up to guard #1.

#4 steps to the short corner.

#1 has option to drive or pass to the short corner.

If the ball goes to #4 in the short corner, #5 makes a basket cut.
