Purdue’s Matt Painter is fortunate to have one of college basketball’s best big men in A.J. Hammons. Hammons’ ability to draw multiple defenders’ attention coupled with his ability to pass out of the post make for a deadly combination.
After a post entry, the opposite slot/wing area are often the most open spots on the floor. The screen/re-screen action from the 4 results in a 3-point attempt for the 2. In the video, Caleb Swanigan screens then re-screens for Rapheal Davis. Hammons then hits the open Davis for a 3.
