Pinch Post Breakdown

One of the most difficult to guard actions out of Michigan’s offense is the use of the pinch post. Within the offense, 5 may set a backscreen for a guard and then receive a pass at the high post. Michigan then runs guards off the pinch post, looking for handoff and reversal to a shooter receiving a pindown screen.
