This defense will cause more deflections and put your offense into more positive situations while also frustrating your opponents offense. This DVD will teach the basics of the zone along with some useful adjustments.
Coach Davis shows the basics of the zone on a whiteboard by detailing each players position and role inside each position. The main theme of each players role is to disrupt passing lanes and shut down dribble penetration into the paint.

Using traps and deflections early in a possession leads to many easy baskets for your team and causes the offense to be more hesitant.
