After Time Out Zone Quick Hitters

Today’s post contains two quick hitting plays that you can set up during a time out or to start a quarter or half when you are facing a 2-3 zone defense.

Adjust these sets to fit your players and philosophy and/or take bits and pieces to combine with what you already run against 2-3s.

The plays are from The Best of Special Teams Playbook assembled by Chris Filios. The playbook contains 210 basketball plays from 40 different NCAA teams. It is paired with Scott Peterman’s Ultimate Matchup Zone Defense Playbook as this week’s eBook special. You can find out more about what is included in the bundle at this link:
