Basketball Plays BLOB vs 2-3 Zone

This post has two ideas for plays to run against 2-3 zones.

The first is a Baseline Out of Bounds play for a three point shot from Purdue.

The second is a quick hit to get the basketball inside from Kansas.

These plays are from Scott Peterman’s Zone Offense and Zone Defense notes collection.

Purdue BLOB

Diagrams created with FastDraw

basketball-plays-1

 

The action begins with 4 making a hard cut out of the corner to carve out space on the opposite block in front of the weak side defensive forward.

If he does a good job, it draws the middle defender towards him as well.

At the same time, 3 loops from the weak side elbow to the strong side wing with 5 screening in for him.

 

 

basketball-plays-2

 

In diagram 2, you see 2 follow a similar path once 3 has cleared the wing area.

2 should be open on this as the ball side guard defender will have chased 3 and the opposite side guard is caught
on 5’s screen.

This is consistently an open three for the Purdue player in this position.

 

 

Kansas Zone Quick Hit

Starting in 1-2-2 set, the action is initiated by the 2 wings running into a cross.

2 goes first with the goal being the two wings crossing each other’s body on the right side of the lane.

Rather than popping out to the wing, 3 steps to screen for 4.

4 gets another cross screen from 5 and cuts underneath the rim to a spot just below the block to catch a post entry pass from either 2 or 1.
