Actions

a) End-outs

Stack (line) and box sets are common for end-outs (and side-outs). For a progression of basic screening options from a box end-out, see Faucher, Wootten Box, Pin-screen, Coastal Carolina.

Often an inbounder enters the court opposite the inbounds pass. On plays to get the inbounder open for a shot, options include:

For a shooter who is not the inbounder, options to get a shot include

A common end-out tactic against zone defence is to use both corners, see Corners (zone). For end-outs that can be used against man or zone defence, see Line, Lob to 5, Stack 3, Jayhawk, Izzo chips, special and special-special, and Tennessee and Trojans also use the corners.

b) Side-outs

Getting the ball in safely is a priority on side-outs. Options against aggressive defence include a ballside overload, zipper cuts, backscreen looking for a lob pass, and a line formation. Against teams that try to deny a zipper cut, have the cutter backscreen then cut up. Commonly the inbounder is a scoring option, getting screened to the rim or sometimes on a give and go.

There are opportunities to score a 3 (or 2) in short-clock situations, e.g. screen a shooter to the corner, flare screen, elevator screen, zoom action.up
