Blog Post: Keys to Attacking a Match-up Zone
1-3-1 alignment. Play is initiated with a pass to either wing and then immediately swung back to the other wing in order to start the cutting action.
The low post players run a low X filling the weakside block and ball side short corner. The weakside wing flashes to the middle of the zone and the point guard fills the vacated spot on the wing.
The key to this offense is for the wing to use a misdirection "drag" dribble back to the point area to drag the zone defender away from his area while the high post player fills the vacated area.
Once the drag dribble distorts the zone, the ball handler can pass it back to the wing or hit the wing flashing into the middle.
On any short corner catch, look to shoot/attack 1st and then look for the high post player .
If nothing develops on any of these actions. The 2 man can pass to the wing and start the action again on the other side of the floor.
