Iowa State Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Fred Hoiberg, has implemented an offensive system with his Cyclones that can light up a scoreboard with numerous scoring options every time down the floor. Follow along as Coach Hoiberg shows his flex set out of a 4-out 1-in traditional secondary look. This play creates space and opens up several scoring options.
Athlete Movements: The point guard will hit the trailer and the 2 guard will run a hard flex cut off of a hard screen by the inside post player. The point guard will then down screen for the post player who will look for a shot from the trailer if the ball had not been passed inside to the 2. If 5 does not have a shot off the down screen, he swings the ball to the point guard, and then follows his pass into an immediate ball screen.

In the 2013-2014 season, Fred Hoiberg led his team to a 2014 Big 12 Tournament Championship and an appearance in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen. Watch as Coach Hoiberg shows a couple of scoring options off the secondary break. These options start with a wide pin down screen from the trailer position, which allows his team to be a high scoring unit.
Athlete Movements: This simple action begins with a wide pin-down screen from the trailer position. The wing receiving the screen has the option to curl his cut right into the lane for a lay-up.
The next option extends the Wide Pin-Down action, as Coach Hoiberg guides the wing curls through the lane, but does not receive the pass. The screener will then roll back to the ball and catch it in a “pinch post” area that could result in a hand-off or subsequent ball screen with proper spacing on the backside.
Teaching Points: Spacing on the other side of the floor is emphasized by Coach Hoiberg, as he has a shooter spotted in the corner, the high wing, and a low post player gets to “his room” – the short corner spot off the lane that allows the lane to open up more.

Iowa State Men’s Basketball Head Coach, Fred Hoiberg, has implemented an offensive system that can light up a scoreboard with numerous scoring options every time down the floor. Follow along as Coach Hoiberg shows his flex set with several scoring options as well as an effective counter to get the ball inside.
Player Movements: On the pass from the point guard to the trailer, 2 will still make a hard baseline flex cut. This time, however, the trailer will ball fake the reverse pass and pass back to the point guard who fakes down and pops back out the wing. As soon as 5’s man helps on the flex cut, 5 will bury him in the lane to get a deep post catch.
Teaching Points: Make sure to maintain good spacing throughout the drill.

2012 Big 12 Co-Head Coach of the Year and former 10-year NBA veteran, Fred Hoiberg, believes that ball screens in transition are especially hard for teams to defend. The ‘Double Drag’ & ‘Double Pin Down’ allow for multiple scoring options and would be an effective call following a free throw.
Player Movements: The first option that Hoiberg demonstrates is the ‘Double Drag’ with scoring opportunities for the point guard to turn the corner with a shooter in the corner, a roll to the basket by the first screener, and a pop by the second screener with a subsequent 2nd ball screen.
The ‘Double Pin Down’ set is where the two screeners will set the ball screens then double down for the shooter in the corner, which promises an open look for a shooter. This option also includes a slip by the first screener.
Drill Tips: Make sure to keep proper spacing during the ‘Double Drag.’ For the ‘Double Pin Down’ it is important to have a good double screen and that the shooter slips right by the double screen for a jump shot or lay-up.

Current Iowa State University Men’s Basketball Head Coach and 10-year NBA veteran, Fred Hoiberg, believes in attacking the defense and looking at the different actions to score before the defense is set. With this Baseline Double Set shown in the clip below, Hoiberg shows several very good actions out of the same look that will provide both inside and outside scoring opportunities.
Baseline Double Set
Overview: The set begins with a traditional secondary break look with the point guard with the ball, the wings spaced in the corners, the first post down the floor on the ball side, and a trailing post at the top.
Player Movements: The trailing post goes down to the opposite block while the point guard starts in the direction of the wing that is going to get screened for, and then reverses his dribble back towards the top. The wing runs off two baseline screens from the post players located on each block, making this a good play for a team that has a good shooter. While this is happening, the other wing is cutting over the top and through the lane.
Drill Essentials: Creating strong screens on the baseline and good cutting runs from the wings.
Drill Tips: Counters and other options for this set include:
