  • Basketball Play - 2-3 Zone Defense

Defense is in a basic 2-3 zone. 2-3 is used to slow down the offense, stop dribbling penetration (Layups). The zone is supposed to force outside shooting.



Players must communicate at all times in this defense, move on the flight of the ball (when the ball moves), have active hands at all times and anticipate passes.
