Zone Offenseby Rob Lanier
- Beat the defense up the floor.
If it is your team's offensive style, fast-break and push the ball up the floor as quickly as possible, before the defense can get set
- Full-court press on defense
This favors a transition type, wide-open, up-tempo game. A slow-down, half-court game allows the zone defense to be more effective
- Analyze the zone
- What kind of zone set are you facing, 2-3, 1-2-2, 1-3-1, etc? Then set your offense accordingly.
