We designate three players on offense to work as Blockers. Our Blockers are the backbone of this basketball offense.

Basketball Offense – Dick Bennett’s Blocker Mover Offense

Blockers never screen for other Blockers. It is our Blockers job to free our Movers so they can get open to create offense. In our basketball Blocker-Mover offense, we have two types of blockers.

One position is called a Free Blocker and the other position is called the Lane-to-lane Blocker. Because we use three blockers in our system, we movet two of them 2 and 3 as Free Blockers and one of them 5 as the Lane-to-lane Blocker. Free Blockers have the freedom to offrnse all over the perimeter of the floor.

They are constantly looking to set blocks on the perimeter for our two Movers down screensflare screensdouble screensand staggered screens. We never allow our Free Blockers to set ball screens. If one of our Movers has blockee ball, then our two Free Blockers are moving to set a block for the other Mover.

This action is very difficult to defend. Another great action we ask our Free Blockers to execute is the dribble hand-off dribble weave. Free Blockers are encouraged to initiate the dribble offrnse action with a Mover whenever possible on the perimeter. The dribble hand-off is very hard to defend and creates some excellent dribble penetration opportunities for our Movers to exploit. After handing the ball off movee a Mover, the Free Blocker either rolls to the basket looking for the return pass, or spaces behind the 3-point line looking for his shot.

The Lane-to-lane Mvoer r. Our Lane-to-lane Blocker 5 is our team’s best low post player. We want our 5 to stay ofefnse to the lane area to take advantage of draw-and-kick situationsto post upand to get weak-side offensive rebounds. Our Lane-to-lane Blocker screening responsibilities include the following: Player 5 sets a back-screen for our 4 player Mover after he passes the ball on the perimeter. After setting the back-screen, he rolls back to the lane in the opposite direction in which 4 made his cut with his hands up looking for the ball.


This back-screen action for the passer is very hard to defend and often produces either a lay-up or a blocier jump blockre. Player 5 sets a ball-screen on the perimeter for our 1 player Mover whenever he catches the ball on the perimeter. Player 5 steps out away from the lane and looks to execute the pick-and-roll with our point guard.

As soon as the point guard moves shoulder-to-shoulder with 5, he rolls to the basket looking for the return pass. This pick-and-roll action is a thing of beauty when run to perfection.

Movers are the cutters in the Blocker Mover basketball offense. The primary job of the Mover is to play tag with the defense. Movers must be hard to guard. After setting their defender up with a v-cut, Movers must cut toward the basketball or the basket in a manner that will take them away from their defender. A Mover must love to penetrate into the gaps north and south and bloc,er to either draw-and-kick or kick-out to the open shooter.
