Watch: UNC Honors Late Coach Dean Smith with Four Corners Offense

The University of North Carolina men’s basketball team honored legendary coach Dean Smith, who passed away earlier this month by starting their game today against Georgia Tech, by running the offense that he popularized in the early 1960s. Not only did they run the play, but the Tar Heels scored, with Marcus Paige finding Brice Johnson on a backdoor cut.

The offense has a player standing at each corner of the half court, forcing defenses to spread out as widely as possible, leading to open lanes for drives and passes, with opportunities for backdoor cuts like the one Johnson scored on.
