Kermit Davis, all-time winningest coach at Middle Tennessee State University, has a knack for the defensive end of the floor. He has created the ultimate "morphing" zone defensive package that creates deflections, causes turnovers, and creates better offensive advantages for your team. This 1-3-1 zone package has helped the Raiders win four championships over the last six years (2010-15).
In a live practice setting, you'll get the opportunity to watch as Coach Davis installs the ultimate 1-3-1 zone defense with a young team that is just learning the basics. You'll learn the rules to the offense and how it can be adjusted to cover talented shooters or to shift into a different defense mid-possession.
Beginning with whiteboard diagrams, Coach Davis draws up the basic set-up for the 1-3-1 zone. You will learn the roles and rotations of each player, in addition to the technique that must be emphasized to disrupt passing lanes and shut down dribble penetration.
By utilizing your most athletic players, Coach Davis teaches you how to force the ball out and away from the basket. This creates traps early in the possession along with deflections, leading to easy buckets in transition. As the ball is rotated around the perimeter, Coach Davis outlines how players can use their long athletic ability to force lob passes from one corner to the next.
Switching from 1-3-1 to a 2-3 Zone
As the ball is rotated to the baseline, the ultimate 1-3-1 zone defense changes into an aggressive 2-3. This is a great way to confuse an opponent and steal valuable time from their possession. Coach Davis demonstrates how to take your athletic forward and move them to the block while your wings put pressure on the ball. You'll also learn how to disguise your top players and make your opponent think there's no opening so they'll reverse the ball back up top.
1-3-1 Zone vs Special Situations

You will also learn how to pressure a team with the 1-3-1 by constantly trapping the ball in situations when your opponent wants to take the last shot.
