Lipscomb 4-Low BLOB Adjustment

In Wednesday’s NIT quarterfinal game between Lipscomb and North Carolina State, head coach Casey Alexander drew up a simple and effective baseline out of bounds play. As you will see below in the clip, Lipscomb ran a play to set a screen for the inbounder, Matt Rose (#12) to get a shot in the corner. There was then a timeout to review a foul and in that timeout, Coach Alexander made a brilliant adjustment to get an easy layup. Obviously, the read made by the inbounder is fantastic, but the spacing created by Garrison Mathews (#24) on the weak side was the key. He was making everything he shot and forced the defense to play him tight, which opened up the lane for an easy pass and layup.

Purdue High/Low BLOB

Purdue executed a simple BLOB two times in their game vs. Northwestern on February 1, 2017.  In the video below you will see the high/low action with Caleb Swanigan & Isaac Haas.  With two dominate bigs, Purdue is able to execute the timing perfectly and get position under the basket for an easy shot.  (There are two BLOBs in the video and a diagram below).

Belmont "4-Low Sleeper"

Coach Rick Byrd, Head Men's Basketball Coach at Belmont, has always been a great X's & O's mind.  Every season he seems to have some of the best BLOBs that are executed to perfection every time.  In the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament last week, Belmont ran this brilliant BLOB out of the timeout and caught the Austin Peay defender sleeping.  The false action on the opposite side of the floor allow the Belmont offense to take advantage of the poor defense.  See video clip and FastDraw diagram below.
