Kentucky Wildcats “5 Flash” Pick & Roll Stagger

The Kentucky Wildcats ran this half-court set during the 2012 Men’s Final Four. Coach Calipari does a great job with this action occupying the weak side defense with a double (stagger) action. 2 had the option of using the pick & roll (with Anthony Davis rolling), or he could turn down the screen because X1 and X4 consumed with the weak side action.

Kentucky Wildcats Motion X

John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats ran this motion action during the 2013 Final Four. This is a great set that creates movement and ends with a side pick & roll after a quick pin-down. If 2 can turn the corner and beat X4 there is limited help to the rim; the only option being X5 which could lead to an easy pass to 5 if X3 fails to rotate down as well.

52 Spread from John Calipari

Coach Calipari ran this action during the 2012 Final Four. This is a great set to spread the floor and get your big 4/5 defenders away from the rim.
