Basketball Zone Protection

Types of Zone Protection

The basketball zone protection is defined by the number of players in the zone and the number of backs. For example, a 2-3 zone means that there are two players in the zone and three middle or rear players. This is a zone of 2-3 zones, including 1-3-1, 2.2.1, and 1-2-2.

The match-up zone is a kind of basketball zone defense that requires the defenders to play the man's defense for any player entering their zone. Box-and-one zone protection is where players have a 2-2 box-form and the fifth player is specifically guarded by one of the players, usually the team's strongest opponent.

Finally, the semi-judicial trap is when a fast forward advancement with long arms and legs protects the ball bearer, preventing these moves. The guard protects the low position and three defending players approach the center line. This results in 1-3-1. A semi-court trap often notices a man's defense and works only when a team defends the ball leader with great progress.

Tips for Success

One of the requirements of basketball zone protection is unique to other zone protection. To be successful, players must remember that:

"Keep your hands all the time, the most successful zone protection that is to prevent the passage from the area to the area and improper shot that will allow the defense to rebound.

Remember a match-up basketball zone protection where every defender has an area like the zone but protecting one's for players such as human protection

This game took 2-1-2 formations. 2 divide the top of the key while 3rd player is on the free throw line, players 4 and 5 are on the net and each player takes an attacking player and protects them.

If the 2- player 2 (OP 2) and OP 2, then the defense must stop. Then players 2 and 4 must switch over because OP 2 is now down off player was defending 4 players.

This form serves the idea of ​​a zone, where player 4 belongs to the zone closest to the basket on the right. Player 2 has the zone on the pitch. Since all relative, Player 2 has now returned to the original 4th place.
