Both coaches provide on-court demonstrations to show you how to effectively attack any zone defense.
Coach Knight Zone Offense Strategies
Zone defenses have become very good at clamping down on opponents’ offenses. To beat the zone, Coach Knight uses two basic strategies – dribble penetration and beating the defense down the floor in transition. In his on-court demonstrations, you will see every possible attacking angle that can be used to beat the zone off the dribble. Coach Knight shows you how to create offensive advantages as the result of dribble penetration.
Using the dribble helps to distort a zone defense. Coach Knight reveals his philosophy of forcing the zone to move as the ball is passed and then shows you the dribble and pass fake to beat most any zone including the 2-3, 1-3-1, and 1-2-2. Coach Knight also shows you how to use screens against the zone to maximize your scoring opportunities. You’ll hear all of Coach Knight’s secrets to dissecting zone defenses.
Coach Auriemma Zone Offense Strategies
Connecticut women’s basketball has faced its fair share of zone defenses. As a result, Coach Auriemma believes in penetrating the zone to break it down. He will show you two ways to penetrate – drive the gaps and pass attack to bring the ball to your best player instead of bringing the defense and your best player to the ball.
After sharing his basic principles behind attacking zone defenses, Auriemma then goes through on-court demonstrations of five quick-hitting actions. Each is designed to get a quick shot against a zone. In addition, Coach Auriemma shows you how to use a man-to-man offense to beat a 2-3 zone. The use of ball screens and dribble penetration produces easy open looks and 3-point attempts just like a man-to-man offense.
Any zone offense can benefit from the expertise, instruction, and philosophy of two of the greatest coaches the game has known. This 113-minute video will help your offense create advantages and scoring opportunities against any zone defense. Rent this Zone Offense Strategies DVD today
