“14� Premise: 14 turns the natural order of basketball on its head. In 14, the big men become point guards, the point guards become wings and the wings become point guards. In other words, if ran with patience and crisp passes, 14 cannot be defended in man to man set up. We have big guys who can pass, wings who can hit layups and players who are versatile all over the floor, this play is perfect for our team, great job Eric and Kyle! The play starts in our standard 3-2 setup though not for long.

“14” The Point guard, recognizing that we are facing a man defense will call out “14”. As Ben, pointed out, this can be called any number as we have only one play. If you hear a number called you should know that it is “14”. The post’s, in this case Ben and Andrew pop high post. On the next screen we will see what happens when the play is put in.

“14” Option 1The play is initiated by a pass to the post in this case, Andrew.

“14� Option 1Andrew will either turn or drop step a pass to the cutter in this case Toby. Pay special attention to the defenders, notice they have been pulled out of the lane.

“14” Option 2Seeing that the first option is not available, Andrew has a second option happening rather quickly which is Kyle running off Andrew’s shoulder for a hand off. Pay special attention that this play is a hand off/pick. In a matter of seconds this is the second layup that we could have

“14” Option 3– Timing is everything Seeing that Kyle has not received the basketball, the opposite side Post Player, in this case Ben will set a pick for the opposite side wing, in this case Justin. Toby and Kyle will continue to swing through with Kyle setting up position on the far wing and Toby becoming the point.

“14” Option 3– Three options down, what do we do? Justin has now cut through for a potential shot, he will then pop back out free throw line extended if a pass is not done.

“14” If at first you don’t succeed, run it again! Seeing that there is no option, Andrew would kick the ball out for the play to be ran again. Conclusion: Timing is what we will need to focus on. We must be patient with each other. A couple of items, Ralph Miller’s Beavers ran a set similar to this and were highly successful. Roland Schaefer of the current Oregon State Beavers may have a shot at playing in the pro’s because of this offense. This offense makes up for the fact that we do not have a dominant scorer on this team. Though, with patience and time we may find someone in this offense.

“Overload� Concept (Note: These names are just symbolic you may end up playing any one of these roles, so learn them all!) We see a lot of 2-3. 2-3 is predicated on forcing outside jump shots while shutting down the middle. Overload is an attempt to get good shots. Notice that in diagram 1 we are in a 3-2 offensive set up. It is natural that the two wing players can attack with a three pointer or put the ball on the floor. This is what the defense wants most of all. A quick three pointer is the 2-3 zones favorite

“Overload� 1st Pass The ball is moved to a either the free throw side right or left. The weak side player (in this case Justin) swings through to the other side. The weakside post (in this case Ben) pops high post.

“Overload” The 4 square play Spacing is critical at this point in the play. If we are too close we will not be able to attack the basket. The blue square highlights the ball movement that should take place. Anyone of the four can attack the hoop but we must decide, “Do I have a good shot?” Do I have a lane to attack the hoop? If the answer is clearly no, move the ball.

“Overload� Reversing the ball needs to happen when the defense has dug in and is doing a great job of denying the ball. Notice that the defense has adjusted their zone. By doing this, the weakside pg (in this case, Toby) is left open for the reversal. Once the weakside player gets the ball we can set up and run the play again, from the otherside.

“2-3 zone” Concept: The 2-3 zone is our bane. Offensively we face it, defensively we couldn’t use it. No more. The concept of 2-3 is just as it looks, 2 players on the top, three players protecting the hoop. We will talk about the roles that each part has in the zone.

“2-3 zone� The 2 up top In a zone, you are not covering a man rather an area. The two players up top are vital to the success of the zone in that they must not break from their general area and they have defensive priority over everyone else in the zone. Example: Kyle and Justin in this case must cover the perimeter. Their duty in the 2-3 is to challenge shots and stop penetration. The two up top are the most important defenders because they are the first line of defense against the offenses attack.

Justin Kyle

“2-3 zone” The 2 on the corners The two players on the wing are important because they are often help defenders. They serve to “pinch” a shooting guard on the wings, and defend the perimeter. Rebounding is especially vital to these players as the two guards will be working hard to stop penetration and contest shots and may not be able to get the boards. It is important that the corner defenders help out and rebound the basketball.

“2-3 zone” The big man in the middle The Center is the most likely player to foul out in a two three zone. This is because the offensive players get by the guards and leaves the Center to protect the hoop. Don’t get mad at the refs if this happens. Like a king in Chess the Center must be protected. The Center also must be like the QB in football. Because he sees the court, he must be talking and communicating if players get out of position. It is his job to help make sure the 2-3 is compact and forcing an outside shot.

“2-3 zone” Weakness’s in the Zone Built into a 2-3 zone are weakness’s inherent in the zone. The following pages will reveal this weakness.

“2-3 zone� Up the middle First, going right up the gut is the offenses quick attack against the zone. The need here is that the two guards must stay close without breaking their own area. This is also why three pointers happen in a two three is because both defenders have to stop the ball.

“2-3 zone” Answering: Up the middle In this scenario, Kyle comes out and “shades” the player to his side. This could of course be Justin. The point is that the PG isn’t able to take the ball down the middle and get our center into foul trouble. Notice also, that everyone else is staying home. We do not want to get out of position without a pass being thrown

“2-3 zone� Whose job is it? In the 2-3, the most dangerous time for the defense is the first pass. This is because the guards and corner defenders may be confused as to their role, thereby giving up a three point shot or worse, a wide open drive.


Toby

Andrew

Kyle

Ben

Justin

“2-3 zone� Answer: Whose job is it? It is of course, both players job. The corner defender, in this case Ben, must pop out to stop the three or the drive but as soon as the guard in this case justin goes over, he must clear Ben out. Once again, notice that everyone else stays at home.


Rebound

Justin

Quick shot YES!!!

“2-3 zone� When does the 2-3 zone work? How do we rebound in a 2-3? The 2-3 works when the defense takes a quick shot. We want a challenged shot that is from downtown. This is why we want to use a 2-3 not as our main defense but as a way of confusing the offense who has become used to our man defense. Rebounding is the second problem we face. Because we do not have a man to box out, we must search for someone to box out. Yes and No, we must go to an area and box out! We must zone rebound. Highlighted above is how the zone rebound should work. The shape is what the corner defenders and the Center must make if the rebounding is to be successful. This also means that we must be aggressive in calling our rebounds and going for it.
