Blog Post: Keys to Attacking a Match-up Zone
1-2-2 alignment. Play begins with a pass to either wing.
Guards interchange and ball side post player flashes to high post area.
2 then cuts to low block and gets behind the zone. 3 immediately reverses ball to other wing.
As 1 catches, high post sets a ball screen as 3 drifts to wing. 1 must attack hard to create space for pass back to 4.
After screening the ball, 4 pops to receive throwback from 1. As 4 receives pass, 5 sets baseline screen for 2, and 4 looks to hit shooter in corner or post player sealing off the zone.
