Train your team to score against both even-front and odd-front zone defenses. Bob Brown has been around various levels of basketball for 52 years and has worked with some the nation's best basketball coaches. In this instructional DVD, Coach Brown uses an on-court demonstration to breakdown his two most effective zone offenses against both an even-front and odd-front defense. These offenses, which are both simple to implement yet extremely difficult to defend against, have been used successfully at the high school, as well as NCAA DI levels.

Coach Brown's zone offense principles are based on spacing that creates triangle overloads, as well as quick, precise passing. Elements that make or break a possession, including stance, body language, passing and catching technique are in the presentation.

Vs. Even Fronts Against the even-front zone defense, Coach Brown relies on his wings' spacing to create overloads and open up the high post. Using the 4 at the high post and the 5 in the short corner creates a defensive imbalance. Skip passes and appropriate slides allow the proper spacing to keep the defense chasing the ball. Coach Brown shares a couple of drills to add to your practices that will help your team learn the core concepts of this offense.

Vs. Odd Fronts Coach Brown ends his presentation with a breakdown of his uneven-front defense that stresses low block screens and corner jump shots. While getting a great outside shot helps beat a zone defense, creating good looks around the rim are also essential. Coach Brown demonstrates a series of screens to create an open look from the baseline corner. He attacks with diagonal passes through or over the zone. Key shooting spots are predetermined for your best shooter, although they will be able to pick those spots at will for best results. The defense scrambles to either cover the corner shot or fly to the skip pass opening the post options. He again shares drills that can be used to implement and use this offense at a high level. Many of the same looks are available vs the 1-3-1, 1-2-2 or 3-2 defenses.

Finally, Coach Brown shows how the offense helps create terrific rebounding opportunities that consistently lead to high percentage baskets.

Coach Brown's simple offensive system against a zone is proven and effective. His exciting way of teaching and coaching will help your team thrash opposing defenses this season from every area on the court.
