“Circle” is an entry that we will use against zone defenses. It is a great quick hitter cagainst the zone that we got from Rick Majeus while he was coaching at Utah. There is no initial alignment necessary to get into Circle but Diagram #1 shows an example.
#1 wants to take the ball off the top and make the guard defending her stay with her.
Once the ball is driven off the top, we then want the remaining players (except for #5) to rotate to one of three spots including the top of the key, the wing, and the corner.
#1 can pass to the top of the key for ball reversal or skip it to opposite wing.
We are looking to attack the backside forward and force her to decided whether she wants to cover #2 or #3.
