Video Transcript:
TRAVIS CORPENING: "I talked about, a little bit about the V cut as a way to get open. Well, another way you can use that's more basic, another way you can get open is setting, for about people setting screens, or you setting screens. Here, in order to get open off the screen there's several different ways you can do it but, in our example: we're going to use, have a man on the elbow, that's this part of the court right here, right here beside the free throw line. We're going to take this man right here, he's on the, he's on the corner and we're on the same team. We're coming down court, he's going to set the screen for me, I'm going to walk my man down just like we did on the V cut, walk my man down just like I'm coming down here, down here into the paint. But, what I do is - right here I break so that he, actually right there gets caught on my screen, on my mans screen. So, I rub shoulders and that's what you've got to do when you're, ever you're setting the screen. The guy that's got the ball and the man that's using, that's using, the man that's using the screen and the man that's setting it. You've got to rub shoulders, you rub shoulders so that the defense can't get in between you and him. So, when we do it, step down a little bit this way, right there, right there. When we do it, I come down, I sell it and then I break out like this rubbing shoulders with him so that I'm open to either catch the ball or I can use it as a curl which is actually another move, as a curl which means- I come down here, rub shoulders and curl inside to catch the ball and the defense has no idea what's going on. So, there you have it using screens."
