Hi, this is Sean Hobson. What we’re talking
about right now is the proper way to set up our 2-3 zone. We’re going to show right now
how we set up the 2-3 zone. You can it one of a couple of ways. One way we like to set
it up is we like to bring our point guard out here; we like to bring our second guard
to the line until they get in. Now, once the ball comes down, then we’re going to go ahead
and drop into our 2-3 set. The reason they call it a 2-3 zone is because we’re going
to have two players at the top of the zone. These players are going to be responsible
for the side areas all the way down to the mid-court line. Then, we’ve got three on the
bottom. This guy’s responsibility is he’s got to go out to the corner and guard; he’s
going to help all the way up to the mid-line, so he’s got kind of a triangle area that the
bottom is going to work in. This middle defender has to close on both blocks, he has to work
block to block, and he also has to control all of the middle right here on anybody that
drives. And our low post player on this side has similar responsibilities to that guy over
there, where he’s got to close out on a shooter to the outside, he’s got to work this man
up here and try to trap, and he’s also got to come over and help in the middle when the
ball swings to the opposite side. So again, we’ve got two guards at the top–usually we’ll
have our guards up there. Sometimes you’ll want to put a post player up there just to
get high hands up. And then we’ve got three guys down below that control all of the lower
portion. And that’s how you set up the 2-3 zone.
