Coach Jim Boeheim, one of the most respected minds on the zone and match-up zone defense, now shares on video for the first time ever, his views on how to take advantage of any zone defense.
Coach Boeheim's zone offensive principles are simple: ball movement, man movement, and patience. He uses each of these principles in teaching a zone offense which can be run against a 2-3, 3-2, 1-3-1, and match-up zone (odd or even fronts). He combines chalkboard instruction with on-court demonstration and game clips. In addition, he covers the techniques necessary to effectively attack any zone with these offenses that include strong ball movement, the skip passes, lob pass, when and how to attack gaps, short corner, screening, overloads, high/low action and isolation opportunities. Boeheim demonstrates both a continuity offense and effective quick hitters against man and zone.
