zone press break animationSimple but effective zone press break to be used  against a zone press with a 1 player top.

Basic Rules:

  • Ball is entered to either guard – 1 or 2.
  • The guard that does not get the ball goes to the opening in the middle of the press
  • Ball side big stretches the floor (goes away from the ball)
  • Weakside big contracts (comes to the ball)
  • Inbounder stays a step behind the ball so they are more accessible if the player with the ball is trapped.
  • On ball reversal, guard should be looking middle but also gaining ground up the sideline.
