ZONE OFFENSIVE CONCEPTS

From Coach Don Meyer, here are some key components to ponder in regard to your attack of zone defenses:

#1 Why are they zoning you?
.....--Is it their strength
.....--Is it because they are weak defensively

#2 Determine how you are going to attack
.....--Use your philosophy (conserviative or attack)
.....--Your opponent's philosophy

#3 Your personel (utilization)
.....--Who can penetrate
.....--Who can shoot

#4 Your opponent's personel
.....--Who do we want to attack
