Jim Boeheim’s Complete Guide to the 2-3 Match-up Zone Defense

For the first time ever on video, Jim Boeheim outlines the responsibilities, rotations and reads for each player in his innovative 2-3 Match-Up Zone Defense. The University of Syracuse head men’s champion coach uses marker board diagrams to illustrate his teachings and then supports it with on-court demonstrations and game footage. The proper defensive slides are demonstrated against both odd- and even-front zone offenses. Boeheim also details key concepts such as scouting, trapping, communicaiton, bump-down situations, controlling penetration, defending baseline running, protecting the 3-point line, releasing cutters, protecting the high post area, rebounding and transition back into the 2-3 match-up.
