  • Based on coaches preference player either hedges the screen and player defending the ball goes over or under the screen.  The animation below is a hard hedge and over.
  • Ball screener rolls to the basket
  • Weakside defender is responsible for picking up the roller and also recovering to their man on the wing.
  • Player coming off ball screen looks for roller, if help side does their job they kick to the wing.  The passer now becomes the ball screener.
