The New York Liberty of the WNBA ran this baseline out of bounds set vs man to man defence. 


A common move in attacking zone defences in baseline out-of-bounds situations is to have the best perimeter shooter be positioned in, or cut to, the weak-side corner.  This forces one defender to flatten out along the baseline, if they do not it allows an easy pass to the corner.  When the defence takes this pass away it leads to more openings in the interior.
