Youth Basketball Offensive Play 11: “Last Second Shot 2”

Youth Basketball Offensive Play 11 is a very simple, yet highly effective play that creates an easy last-second shot and scoring opportunity!

This play utilizes multiple screens and cuts to create shots close to the basket. What makes this play so effective is that there are two players coming off of screens and moving toward the basket for scoring opportunities. If the ball handler isn’t able to drive to the basket, then they have a teammate who should be open for a pass and shot.

One of the most important keys to being successful with last-second plays is to create more than one scoring opportunity for the players. By giving the ball handler more than one option on the play – easy scoring opportunities are created. Plus, the defense has a more difficult time defending the play and preventing a basket.

Last-second plays that are properly designed address these important keys, give the players options, and create easy scoring opportunities! Youth Basketball Offensive Play 11 does all that!

In order to run this play effectively, players must first understand the fundamentals of basketball. Once players can perform the offensive fundamentals properly, then they will be more effective at running last-second plays.
