(Rental)-The Great Equalizer: The 2--3 Match--up Zone
- You can play great defense against an oversized or undersized team
- Get your opponent out of the game
- Allow your players to switch their formations in the middle of defensive possessions
To create a hybrid 2-3 Matchup Zone defense system, Coach Pecora uses a lot of techniques from Syracuse and Louisville. It is unique among all other zones in basketball. Pecora uses a simple approach to stopping the ball from moving, keeping it under pressure, and closing the game - with a five-man rebounding mentality. Pecora explains the foundation of his defense, calling, progression drills and teaching tools, as well as his philosophy to changing his defense's formation. Pecora shows how to disguise and transform the 2-3 zone into either a 1-3-1 or 3-2 look. These defenses can be extended to the half-court and full court. To help you understand the advantages of this defense, he shows extensive game footage. Pecora also shows you three offensive zones that he would use against the 2-3 Matchup Zone. This will give you an unique perspective of how to beat the 2-3 Matchup Zone. Pecora encourages a man to man defensive mindset for your team that will keep your opponent off balance.
