Cutters Zone Offense
The trend in modern basketball is to spread the floor and beat zone defenses with skilled players that can shoot. UMBC head coach Ryan Odom has proven his teams can beat anybody when his team became the first No. 16 seed in the NCAA tournament to beat a No. 1 in 2018. Odom led UMBC to a 25-11 overall record including an America East Conference Tournament title and a victory over Virginia in the opening round of the 2018 NCAA tournament.
In this video, Odom shows you how to develop a zone offense that uses more skilled players to create opportunities with weak side flashes, drive and kicks, and natural overloads. Whether you want to capitalize on a number of skilled players or simply don’t have any size inside, Coach Odom shows you how to carve up a zone defense.
Coach Odom’s zone offense is extremely versatile and even when using extra shooters in the lineup it allows teams to play inside-out through ball and player movement. You will see how you can attack the rim using overloads, shifting the post player to open up logo touches, and dribble penetration. There are also ways to vary the attack by allowing the post player and the baseline runner some freedom. This can help distort and overwhelm a zone defense resulting in drives, jump shots, and post feeds. You can even use screens to pin down defenders.
Using a more traditional zone look, Coach Odom shows you how perimeter players can penetrate the defense. This is huge especially for teams that try to play a non-shooting guard against a zone. Coach Odom will also show you how to use ball screens to open up driving lanes. This can serve to collapse a defense and open up perimeter shots.
In addition, Coach Odom offers up a few set plays to use in transition and in short clock situations. You will see how to attack a zone defense using the popular Horns set or the “Angie” ball screen as the clock winds down. There is also a segment on flowing into the zone offense using actions primarily seen in the Blocker-Mover offense. These can create early scoring opportunities.
Coach Odom’s presentation is perfect for any coach looking to modernize the zone offense attack. Rent this zone offense DVD today.
