(Rental)-Attacking Zone Defenses With Continuity Offense And Set Plays
Attacking Zone Defense with Continuity Offense and Set Plays
With more teams running zone defenses at all levels of play, teams need more simple but effective methods of attacking zones. Sharman White, head coach at Pace Academy in Georgia, teaches you a continuity style offense as well as some quick hitters that you can use to defeat any type of zone defense. White, a former Georgia State assistant, won seven Georgia Class AAAA state titles, including six in a row from 2009 to 2014. He has also won two gold medals with USA Basketball (U16 and U17 teams).
Three Continuity Offenses vs. Zone
Coach White shares three different continuity offenses all based on his principle of “attack the match ups.” Each offense is designed to expose the weaknesses of the 2-3. Coach White goes into detail about counters to the most likely defensive adjustments, which increases your opportunity to score.
The featured set is Kansas, which overloads one side of the floor with four players. The offense has multiple entries and is simple enough to be used at the lowest levels. It can be used as a complete standalone offense or as a formation to fall back into if a quick-hitter doesn’t work.
Quick Hitters vs. the Zone Defense
Building off of the continuity offenses, Coach White presents you with a number of quick-hitting actions that can provide an opportunity to score quickly against a zone defense. It could be the end of a half, coming out of a timeout, or the final shot of a game; Coach White’s quick-hitters are tried and true options for clutch moments in games.
Beating the Junk Defense
Too often, teams that have difficulty dealing with a very good player will try some sort of gimmick defense like the box-and-one. Coach White offers up four effective plays for beating these “junk” defenses.
Coach White’s overall approach to attacking zone defenses is absolutely brilliant because of its simplicity. This 73-minute video provides invaluable instruction for those coaches struggling to find answers to zone defenses. Rent this Attacking Zone Defense DVD today.
