Re-screening can also be effective with ball screens, particularly a screen set in the middle of the court.

Here X1 goes “under” the screen set by 5 and is able to stop the dribbler from penetrating. 5 turns around and sets another screen, so that 1 can change direction.

It is important that the screener establishes a stationary position on the new screen before 1 attempts to move past. If the screener is moving at the time of contact with the defender it is likely to be an offensive foul.

The re-screen is equally effective if the defender goes “over” the initial screen. Once the dribbler has taken a step or two past the screen, the screener turns around to set a new screen.
