The Basketball Ball Match Up Zone Defense



I am so thankful to continually hear from the basketball community regarding my youtube video series and ebook regarding what I call the Ball Match Up Zone Defense.  I have seen others post my videos on their basketball websites and get frequent correspondence from those looking to implement some ideas of the defense.

One of the joys I get out of coaching is hearing other coaches’ ideas and then trying to tweak to my situation, my talent level, or my preferred style.  Coaches love to draw their X’s and O’s!

Here are the youtube video clinics explaining key teaching points of the defense.

  2. Video Two

  4. Video Four
  5. Video Five

I am extremely proud of the ebook I created to share the diagrams, teaching points, and drills I have used to implement the defense.  Click here to order the PDF download for only $10.99.  The Ebook is supplemented with video clinics to help illustrate key teaching points.  Here is a sample page from the book.

Here are some coaching resources I used to learn how to teach zone defense.

Don Casey, Ralph Miller, Bob Knight, Bob Huggins, Dick Bennett, Burrall Paye, Bill Green, Rick Pitino, Jim Boeheim, Tom Izzo, Bob Hurley, Dick DeVenzio, Don Meyer, Jeff Bzdelik, and Dean Smith.
