What is a Matchup Pressure Zone Defense?

The match-up zone is a "hybrid" defense, which combines the tenacity and pressure of man-to-man, with the help and support of a zone.

The on-ball defender closes out and plays tight to his opponent, using the same principles as a good man-to-man defense. Meanwhile, your other four defenders pick up players in their respective zones, switching freely so your big men stay down low and your quick guards stay on the perimeter.

Key Advantages

1. You can use it with a wide range of personnel. It's simple to install and works like gangbusters, whether your team is tall, short, fast or slow.
2. You can double team more aggressively, without leaving players unguarded
3. You can more easily control the tempo of the game... speed up or slow down the action to press your advantage, or hide your weakness.
4. It keeps your taller players under the basket, so they're in optimal rebounding position at all times.
5. It keeps your guards and wings on the perimeter, making it faster and easier to start your fast break.
6. You can protect players in foul trouble, unlike traditional man to man sets, which expose your defenders to isolation plays, and make them more vulnerable to fouling out.
7. You can shut down the paint, and force opponents to score from outside. Teams who can't consistently make the three will have a very difficult time scoring against you.
8. Many teams don't know HOW to attack a match-up zone. It looks like a man to man one second, then a zone defense the next... confusing and frustrating for your opponents!
