The Wisconsin Badgers ran this quick hitter in their National Semi-Final game vs Kentucky in 2014. The key to this play is for 3 to be patient and curl off tight shoulder to shoulder.

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.

Occasionally North Carolina’s Roy Williams will pull PG Marcus Paige off of the ball and put him at the SG spot. This is exactly what he did in this play the Tar Heels ran in their win over Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon. Furthermore, UNC big man James Michael McAdoo has been unstoppable as of late on offense and and the Heels fed him the post frequently on Saturday.
Below you can see that the 3 screens McAdoo (4) into the post before setting the first screen of the stagger for Paige.
