Through years of development, Flip Saunders has designed one of the NBA's most feared defenses. Coach Saunders unpacks his successful match-up zone defense. He begins his presentation by detailing the benefits of this type of defense. His reasons include its ability to develop player's communication on the floor, stopping great scorers, great scoring teams, employing man defense principles, difficult to scout and can be used with big and small teams. His general match up rules are: Never leave the dribbler, never let the offense penetrate by dribble or pass, encourage ball to corners, switching cutters and contest all perimeter shots. Triangles are the basis of player position in Saunders' 1-2-2 match-up zone. The basic rule is the farther your man is away from the ball, the flatter the triangle. Position is based on the ball and the position of your man at a given time. Strategy against the overload and pick and roll are demonstrated also. In Part II, Coach Saunders breaks down the 1-2-2 match-up zone defense in parts. Teaching slides while the ball is passed on the perimeter helps players guard all situations. As the ball is passed, each alignment, stunt and slide is analyzed by Saunders. Another segment breaks down the pick & roll and its coverage. The match-up is a successful zone that can be played aggressively without fouling a lot. Therefore, you can play good defense while keeping the opponent off of the foul line. Questions are answered from the clinic participants while Saunders discusses and illustrates on the floor with players. Use this presentation to implement the match-up into your program.

Great Video for those looking to add some spice to your traditional zone or a great compliment to your man defense. Coach Saunders does a excellent job teaching the basic principals of the zone and giving teaching points for special situation that haunt most zone teams. Coach Saunders does a great job showing how this true "match-up" zone can mirror your man principals and, if played correctly, can sometimes be hard to tell the difference between your man and this zone!! This is the zone to play for all of us DIE HARD man coaches!!
Flip Saunders is a great coach and presents this defense very well. We run this defense about 20% of the time and it absolutely makes our Man to man help and recovery better. Also, is a great defense for forcing players to talk. Love the DVD!
When you like to learn about the 1-2-2 match up you will get very much information presented in a clear and logical way. Saunders knows what he teaches and has a clear eye for the details that can make this defense work. He not only demomstrates in detail how the defense reacts to several different situations, he also shares lots of drills to build the different parts. As a dessert you get some very nice drills and insights on trapping, defending the downscreen, contest&rebound and fastbreak. Well worth the price!
Good overview of the basic principles, with good examples of different situations. Well presented.
All matchup defenses have some basic similarities, but some are designed to be too smart for their own good. Saunders has developed a simple 1-2-2 matchup that he uses at the NBA level. In the 90+ minutes of this video, Saunders gives the basic slides and responsibilities. He then goes through defending numerous cut, pick and roll, and allignment possibilities. All in all one of the better matchup zone dvds I have seen.
