Many teams execute plays against zone defenses, but Coach Few relies on his team to be aggressive and play zone offense with concepts. This DVD presents the Gonzaga zone offense with six concepts that make it a lethal weapon; they are:

  • Getting the ball up the floor in 5 seconds,
  • Attack the zone from the inside out,
  • Ball should change sides alot (especially early in the clock),
  • Players getting to the areas of the court where they are a threat to score,
  • Hands ready and feet in the air when receiving the ball, and,
  • Crash the offensive boards.

An important teaching point is the "dribble drag," which can put two defenders on the ball handler as a teammate steps behind him in an open area. Coach Few demonstrates three plays - designed for a 3-point shot, a lob pass and a flare screen option. Coach Few also details his "Cutthroat Drill" that emphasizes execution against zone. This organized zone attack has produced great wins, and can be useful to all coaches who want to be more productive against zone teams.
