Taking pieces from many coaches, Coach Jamie Dixon's 4 out, 1 in motion is hard to guard and puts great pressure on the defense. The priorities of this motion are spacing, screen for driving opportunities and post isolation. A two-guard front guarantees ball reversal, which is crucial to stretching the defense from side to side. Teaching the offense begins from a 3-on-3 alignment. The guard to guard pass creates a diagonal screen for the wing. Keys to the diagonal screen are staying wide on the floor and reading the defense. Seven reads are available for the cutting based on the defense's posture. Another weapon of perimeter motion is the flare screen. The passer receives the screen from the wing, leaving the wing area open for his flare cut. Cuts such as the re-screen/fade, basket cut, curl/screen and back cut. In a post and wing scenario, the back screen becomes a good choice, as well as the re-screen/fade option. Flexibility is gained by allowing perimeter players to cut into an open post area and become back screeners on ball reversal. Screening action involving perimeter and posts is effective and causes mismatches. Dixon also covers the various options after the ball is passed to the post.
