Temple Match-Up Zone Defenseby Scott Peterman
I have another new eBook to release to you. It is the Temple Match-up Zone Defense eBook. I have watched more than 100 hours of footage on the Temple Match-up Zone Defense. I have talked with former assistant coaches and players from Temple and compiled my notes into an eBook that is the only one on the market. You can’t find this information anywhere else. It took me over 40 hours to just put this eBook together and assemble it.
If you don’t know much about match-up zones then here you go. It is the “knuckleball of defenses.” You don’t see many people run a match-up zone all game so it is totally hard to prepare for it. Temple University’s basketball team use to spend at least sixty percent or more of practice on the zone and the rest on offense. Temple’s team in the NCAA Tournament was the one that opponents feared to face since it was so unique.
Here are some reasons to run it:
1. There are no holes in a match-up zone defense.
2. There is a greater awareness on help and ballside defense.
3. Constant ball pressure will reap benefits.
4. Zone doesn’t equal “rest.”
5. Time is on your side.
6. Teams never see it on a regular basis so it is hard to simulate in practice.
7. It wreaks havoc on post players.
Men's Basketball Coach Scott Peterman has coached at the NCAA Division 2 (Southwestern Oklahoma State University), NAIA (USAO), and JUCO Levels (Blinn College and Carl Albert State College) as well as high school. Coach Peterman just felt that fellow coaches, especially young coaches, need to constantly work on their “game,” just like the basketball players that we coach. We as coaches need to improve ourselves.
