Hi this is Sean Hobson. When talking about the screen and roll you have to figure out some ways to adjust for what the defense is going to do. One of the best ways that you can defend a pick and roll is something called the hedge and trap. Now if that is a good way to defend the screen and roll we have to know what to do when they run that style of defense. First of all whenever we set our screen and roll I'm going to show you what it means to hedge out on somebody. So here is what we are going to do. If I'm playing on this defender and he comes up to set the screen, the hedge means that I'm going to step out and try to stop this driver. What we want our post players to do as soon as they see that their guy has hedged out and has stopped this guy, they're just simply going to slip, they're not going to roll, they're just simply going to slip to the basket and hold the hand up and this guy is going to feed the ball through the opening. So we're going to show you at full speed what this looks like when somebody comes out and hedges and traps. Alright go ahead. Hedge, good, slip, good. You can see that as a defender it was very hard for me to come out and stop the hedge and also get back on the post player and even if they switch up on their man right there it is still hard for that guy to get on the back side and stop that slip. So you want to slip the screen if somebody hedges the traps and that will help you in the pick and roll offense.
