The goal of any defense is to limit opponents from scoring easy, high percentage baskets. As part of his middle school basketball series, Nick Cammarano turns to the defensive end of the floor and demonstrates his stifling 3-2 match-up zone defense. Using whiteboard diagrams to draw out drills, movements and responsibilities of the 3-2 match-up zone, along with on-court demonstrations to illustrate the system, Cammarano covers every situation your defense will face.

If you're looking for a defense that creates confusion and forces opponents to take bad shots out of the corner of the zone then look no further than the 3-2 match-up zone. Coach Cammarano begins by explaining how the zone should move along with coverage areas for each player. Building from the initial set-up, he demonstrates five breakdown drills that can be used to teach different aspects of the zone such as defending screens or a high post flasher.

Teach players how to defend five different offensive set-ups against the 3-2 match-up zone including the traditional 2-1-2 zone. As guards fly around creating illusions of no-driving angles on the floor, post players will learn to bait shooters into bad shots from the corner of the court. Opponents will be forced to take one of the worst shots on the court.

If you're looking for an aggressive defense, Coach Cammarano demonstrates how to use the 3-2 match-up zone as a trapping defense that creates turnovers, throws opponents out of rhythm, and creates havoc on the defensive end. He also demonstrates how to shift the zone to defend baseline out-of-bounds situations, use two different alignments, Diamond and 1, and how to tilt the zone and defend any offensive situation you might come across during the season.

This is a must-have DVD for any level of coach that is looking for a zone defense. After many years of successfully coaching at the middle school level, Coach Cammarano has developed a unbeatable way to win with the 3/2 match-up zone defense that forces your opponents taking bad shots.
