  Attacking 1-3-1 Half Court Trap

This half court press attack offense works great against those half court zone traps.
It is a simple offense to run with a few options for attacking the trapping defense.

Player 01 brings the ball up the court.
Players 05 and 02 buddy up at the top of the key.
Player 04 is at weak side corner and 03 at wing.

These are the options for getting the first pass against half court 1-3-1 defense.
Player 02 begins the play by flashing up to the half court line looking for the pass.
At same time 03 cuts to the ball side corner.
If players 02 and 03 can not get the ball then 05 pops out to get the pass from 01.
