Creating Successful Basketball Inbounds Plays that Work

Updated on March 6, 2012

Creating a Successful Inbounds Play

Inbounds plays are crucial to having a successful basketball program. They can do numerous things for you. They can help you get the ball inbounds when the pressure is on, and aid you in getting a basket when you have to have one. A successful inbounds play must have each of the following criteria:

  1. needs to have at least three scoring options
  2. needs to have a safety option to get the ball in
  3. the need to get all five players involved
  4. above all it needs to get the ball inbounds

The items above will help you immensely, but you must still do the little things correctly. You must set good screens, explode to the ball, and above all everyone must be on the same page. If one person doesn't know where to go then the play will fail. Below is an example of a successful inbounds plays that I have used over the years. I hope this help.

      Paul, I think you are right. Duke does an excellent job of running effective inbounds plays. Coach K is a master at drawing up stuff that works. I like what you said about the read inbounds play. The only problem with it is you have to have some kids that are basketball smart. That is a problem for us. We have to shell everything over and over again until it become second nature. The kids I have now just don't have that feel for the game that you are talking about. I love the idea though. Thanks for the comment.

      I love inbounds plays. I think no team does it better than Duke. In my playing days, I once drew up a read play where nobody moves, but the pass is dictated by how the defense plays. If one defender is out of position, it sets up very nicely for a quick shot.
