Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

4-Down for San Sebastian.

4-Down for San Sebastian.

One Stag -- usually a very good one on one player stays high with the other four Stags lined up close to the basket. The downside to this is if he gets picked up then it's a breakaway basket.

There are multiple options -- either the player outside -- usually Jerick Fabian or Alfred Gayosa or even Jason David -- will try to attack his man and go up in the middle. The players on either side of the blocks -- at least one of them comes up for a screen and this guy usually can shoot from the outside. If the player attack draws attention. That leaves the player setting the screen for a wide open shot.

On the left: The player also moving up for the screen creates space and the player his passes the ball now to the wing for his teammates to attack.

On the right: Alvin Capobres uses the pick to go to the right side of the court where he could have either an open shot or he can use the pick for a short stab.
