When I coached hoops, we had easy to run OB plays and practiced them

every day. It doesn't take long. We had the same alignment (players liked it because they rarely could screw it up , but could run the play in multiple ways against multiple D's, within the different calls based on what defenders did. Example: in a stack, if our first player cut left, the middle player could dive right or loop back, 3rd player could step forward, etc. Same with Box, or Baseline 4. Our main objective was to get it in to run our offense immediately. If we got a good, clean look, then that was bonus. We'd only run one set each game and rotate for the next game so scouts wouldn't know what we were doing.

Of course, that was HS, so we weren't generally scouted far in advance (we would, but others didn't). Now with Hudl, they can scout everything you do.

CU looks like they don't emphasize OB, especially sideline. Those are real bad. Sideline OB is dangerous in leading to a FB layup off a turnover.
