This is a great play to get the defense shifting over and creating a overload that will evolve into a change of sets. This incorporates 3 main principles of beating a zone. The play starts when it gets to the lower right .



When it gets to the lower corner the player in the top right will cut through.  As that is happening a rotation will being.

At this point #5 has many different looks. What you are looking at is a quick overload. #3 is really a decoy that will draw the defense.  This will open #2 and/or #4 who will fill into space.

If nothing is there #2 can receive the ball and keep it moving. Keep in mind that if #2 and #4 are not open that probably means the defense is shifted over. That would be mean#3 is open on the top center. If #3 is not open he can make one more pass to #6 for the shot. #6 should have filled into that soft spot of the zone. They will not see him coming as he was not originally there and with all the action happening on the other side it will be very hard to track his movement into that spot.



If #5 is a savvy player he will recognize where the defense and can come around for the back door sneak. Remember if the ball has gotten this far that means the defense is shifted over to the other side .



If nothing is open you can reset into a 1-4-1. This gives a much different look then the 3-3 requiring a different defensive technique and challenging the other teams LAX IQ.
