Movement by the Inbounder


In diagram 17, the ball is being inbounded to our left. We are trying to keep the offense on one side of the floor to cut down the area that we need to cover. We try to do so, by having X4 overplay the middle and invite the pass to the near corner.

In diagram 18, the inbounder decides to run the baseline and move from our left to right. The inbounder may run the baseline and move from our left to right. The inbounder may run the baseline after a made basket or after a defensive goaltending call. If the inbounder runs the baseline, we must adjust our defensive press positions. X4 must go with the inbounder and keep pressure on the ball. X3 moves from one position to the right side of the floor, as X2 moves from the left side to show position. X1 will go ball side moving from left to right. X5 will go from right to left to cover the cross court pass.

Diagram 19 shows our new press positions with the ball now on the right side of the floor.
