Sample text

Don't get the wrong idea. Nothing is automatic. Offensive rebounding still takes a lot of hard, physical work. But by knowing where all the players are located in set plays and continuities, you can manufacture three-on-two, two on-one, and one-on-zero offensive rebounding advantages. And it's tough to beat a one-on-zero advantage isn't it? It takes careful study by a coach to take full advantage of these opportunities. Look at the position of all five offensive and all five defensive players on the blackboard and on the court.

These two zones take away top-of-the-key and wing shots but they are vulnerable in the middle and sometimes in the corner. The 1-3-1 zone (Diagram 1-5) covers the top of the key, the wings, the foul-line area, and the low-post area. However, it is vulnerable, especially in the corners and sometimes on top, should the wings drop too far. Diagram 1-5 A match-up zone employs five defensive players in the areas where the offense originates. If an offense shows a 1-3-1 attack, the defense immediately reacts and shows a 1-3-1 zone to match up with the five offensive players.

Quite often you can sneak a player to the weakside block or attack the zone from behind and throw over the defenders. Weakside defenders often have problems with match-up responsibilities. The airborne attacking player has the huge advantage of knowing precisely when and where the ball should be thrown. When zones pressure the ball or really sag to prevent interior passing, the skip or crosscourt pass becomes a potent weapon. A good skip pass can lead to either a jump shot or a strong penetration move.
