If there is one thing that Syracuse University is known for it's the 2-3 Zone Defense. Both the men's and the women's programs at Syracuse have developed a reputation for a smothering, trapping, aggressive style that has proven to be as hard to contend with as any man-to-man defense.
Quentin Hillsman provides a toolbox full of variations to use while running his version of the 2-3 zone. From sideline traps to full court pressure to dealing with screens, this video is the complete package for implementing various strategies to take your opponent out of its comfort zone.
The fundamentals of the 2-3 zone are covered in this unique look from the women's side of the Syracuse zone defense tradition. Coach Hillsman has learned to use subtle variations on the standard 2-3 zone to put his players in position to win games.
He begins the session by sharing his "Rules for Success" verses the ball screen offense. Ensuring the ball handler can't get a shot, preventing splits, and defending against the first pass are just a few of the keys he stresses when faced with a ball screen.
He covers many of the basic 2-3 concepts to establish the foundation for the real treat of this video. With his "ICE" call, Hillsman puts his players in a trapping situation that can easily force turnovers. With his "23 J" coach gets aggressive on the ball handler and allows his players to take a chance. The "23 J" will help you get a hot opponent out of rhythm without compromising the principles of the zone. These and other strategies in this DVD will surprise your opponents and keep them off-balance throughout a contest.
Coach Hillsman adds two valuable tools to this defensive package.

"I am convinced that I need to incorporate part of this DVD into my coaching philosophy. Coach Hillsman brought out a great point early in the DVD that made me realize how this would work for me." - J.

Very disappointed in this video. A lot of big concepts with very little substantial teaching points. Video starts very broad and really never introduces a foundation of principles on which to build. If you are thinking zone, you would be better off checking out Steve Klaas or Don Casey.
