If none of the previous scoring opportunities are open, #2 passes back to #4, thereby setting up the same basic scoring options just described.
At this point, #3 becomes the initial low post and #5 assumes the duty of coming to the high-post position. #2 proceeds as #1 did initially. The question comes up at this point as to what alternative mights are exercised if #1 cannot pass to #4 to start the offense. Generally, proper timing between #1 and #4 to free himself for the pass; however, additional alternatives are established insuring open receivers for #1.
#1 may pass directly to #5 (over the top if #5 is fronted by the defense) as illustrated in Diagram T-9.
#1 also might throw to #2 stepping out, which simply moves the initial attack to the left side, establishing #3 as the corner man. A third possibility is for #1 to pass to #3 stepping to the ball, which sets up a diagonal backdoor cut. If all four receivers are overplayed, the lack of defensive concentration around the basket lends itself to a backdoor pass to one of the logical receivers.
