The play is an end of game set when you need a 3 point shot.

It is diagrammed as a side out play, but can be run as a live ball set by having 3 make a dribble entry to the wing.

It needs at least 5 seconds to allow for a tip in if the initial shot is missed.

With the hammer action on the weak side and the late flare, we should have at least 3 – 3 point opportunities..

In the event there is a deficit of 4 or more, 1 may be able to keep the ball and drive in for quick score. Everyone else is spread out beyond the 3 point line to take away the help – then foul right away and play another play…
