Coaches love drawing up in-bound plays. So much so that I listed it as one of my Favorite Things:
“The team gathered around the coach drawing up an in-bounds play on a clipboard, and the bench rising together as the play creates an easy basket. ‘Nice call, coach!’ “
When I first wrote that, I had in mind a specific in-bounds play we ran against Redlands University. It featured one post screening across the key for the other post, under the Redlands basket. We knew that Redlands was switching screens. In the huddle, I told the player setting the screen to “slip” the screen, and that he would be open for a lay-up.
