Taking pieces from many coaches, Coach Jamie Dixon's 4 out, 1 in motion is hard to guard and puts great pressure on the defense. The priorities of this motion are spacing, screen for driving opportunities and post isolation. A two-guard front guarantees ball reversal, which is crucial to stretching the defense from side to side. Teaching the offense begins from a 3-on-3 alignment. The guard to guard pass creates a diagonal screen for the wing. Keys to the diagonal screen are staying wide on the floor and reading the defense. Seven reads are available for the cutting based on the defense's posture. Another weapon of perimeter motion is the flare screen. The passer receives the screen from the wing, leaving the wing area open for his flare cut. Cuts such as the re-screen/fade, basket cut, curl/screen and back cut. In a post and wing scenario, the back screen becomes a good choice, as well as the re-screen/fade option. Flexibility is gained by allowing perimeter players to cut into an open post area and become back screeners on ball reversal. Screening action involving perimeter and posts is effective and causes mismatches. Dixon also covers the various options after the ball is passed to the post.

Attacking the zone starts with getting the ball inside the zone. Coach Dixon puts a premium on post players that can catch, pass and make plays in traffic. The first drill is a shooting drill from the baseline to simulate playing against a zone. Priorities are catch, rim, partner, throw opposite and dive. Perimeter breakdown is accomplished by playing 3-on-0 on the perimeter. The point, wings and corners can all be filled by guards. Penetration is a big part of attacking zones and Dixon teaches one hard dribble and jump stop into the zone. In a 5-on-0 alignment, the zone offense is demonstrated using many of the options that Dixon teaches. The short corner is a vulnerable spot on the floor for the defense and can be exploited in this offense. The high post is also an excellent area for the offense. The on ball screen on the perimeter can create penetration into zone gaps causing coverage problems for the defense. Set plays are used early in the possession to create movement and flows into the main zone offensive attack. The benefit of this zone offense is that it takes advantage of areas where the zone is weak and makes it work by using ball and player movement.
