Posting Up (3 player combinations)

This entry is part 13 of 14 in the series 3 player Combinations

Below are 9 different 3 player combinations that have a player posting up after executing an action for one action. There are more on the way.  The next set of combinations will have Read Line cuts included.  You’ll notice that all of these posting opportunities are in the mid post.  I will also draw up some high post and stretch options.

You’ll notice in some of these diagrams that there are some obvious screening opportunities. When the post is shown in some of the other locations, we’re going to run across even more good screening opportunities.We’re getting so close to setting screens.

After the next couple sets of 3 player diagrams, we’ll look at some 4 player and 5 player scenarios with a permanent post player.  If you’re playing 5 out, posting up is pretty straightforward.  The cutter doesn’t have very many decisions to make.  They can post up anywhere they want.  In a 4 out 1 in alignment, they have to be cognizant of where this permanent post player is located.

Of  course the rules that you establish for your permanent post player will affect the decisions of your “temporary” post players. We’re going to start looking at that this week.  I hope this stuff is helpful.  If I need to provide more explanation for a specific diagram let me know.
