Backscreen


Backscreen:
A back screen is a basketball maneuver involving two players, called a cutter and a screener. The screener remains stationary on the court while the cutter moves toward the basket and attempts to use the screener to separate himself from his defender:

  • man guarding cutter gets sideways ( smaller area to screen )
  • man guarding screener opens up to let other defender "slip".

Vs shooter-body man accepting the backscreen or flare and force curl ( chase all shooters ).
Always force to one side depending on switching opportunity.

As basketball  (external link) offensive terminology: " Blind side screen on the defender above you ! "

111712 ~ About the Backsreen Technique

The screener positions himself with his back to the basket on the same side of the court as the cutter. The cutter positions himself outside of and above the screener. "Outside" implies that the cutter is closer to the sideline than the screener.
"Above" implies that the cutter is closer to the midcourt line than the screener. Neither player has the ball.

With the screener completely stationary, the cutter moves toward the basket and passes close enough to the screener that they almost touch shoulders. If the cut is properly made, the player defending the cutter will be disrupted by the screener ( who has not moved while setting the screen ) and the cutter will have an opportunity to receive a pass very near the basket.

A back-screen becomes effective when the cutter is defended very closely. An over-playing defender often has her back turned to the basket and cannot see the screen being set. Without time to adjust, the defender will collide with the screener.
