Basketball Play - 4 High Zone

4 High Zone

Justin Scanson 01/22/2015

This is a fantastic zone offense that can be run at all levels. It is the perfect "First Zone Offense" to be taught at the middle school or sub varsity level with easy setup and rules. There is also enough options that more advanced levels of basketball would see success with this offense. Options/Variations From 1-4 set, high post entry. Look for the post that did not receive the entry to dive to the basket. This is hard to guard at all levels. From the wing with posts at short corner/high post, high post entry. Look for the post at the short corner to cut across the lane to the opposite block. From the wing with posts at short corner/high post, skip pass. Posts can X cut or straight cut. See More

Tug Motion

The key to this zone offense is to get your baseline runner to buy in to the idea of crossing the lane on high post entry. I hope you like it and I hope that teams don't immediately change to man defense when you start getting layups! See More

Basketball Play - Boise

Boise

Justin Scanson 01/22/2015

This is a great quick hitter that puts a 2-3 zone in a few tough situations. This play works best if 4 is a threat to shoot the 3 at the top of the key. Once 1 initiates the play and swings the ball, quick ball movement and spacing put x4 in a spot where they have to figure out to whom they want to give the wide open 3. See More
