X-gap entry vs 1-3-1
See Zone offence - X-gap vs 1-3-1.
An entry set against a 1-3-1 zone. 3 is a shooter.
Soft spots of a 1-3-1 zone are the opposite post and opposite corner (Kermit Davis).
On a 1-2 reversal pass, 4 dives from the high post to the low post, opening up a pass to 5 inside or a skip pass to 3.
2 can pump fake toward 4 then make a diagonal skip to 3. The only defender that can get to the corner is weakside X3. If X3 chases too early, 5 is open under the basket.
5 looks to seal out X3 for a pass inside, or seal in (pin screen) for a skip pass to 3.
If top man X2 chases, 2 can pass to 1.
Kermit Davis - 5 tries to block in the weakside wing.
