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.
