Description

with Dan Hibson,
former High School Girls Varsity Basketball Coach at Hillsdale in San MateoSan Mateo (CA); Took a team with zero league wins in the previous 10 years to qualifying for back-to-back playoff appearances.

Dan Hibson took his former high school program, which had not won a league game in over a decade, to back-to-back playoff appearances using this defense as the foundation of his program. Now you can learn the principles and techniques of this proven system.

Coach Hibson's 2-3 Switching Zone Defense combines the aggressive pressure of man defense while giving you the basket protection of a zone. This presentation includes an introduction of breakdown drills on the whiteboard, a software simulation to show the strategies and movement of the defense, and an extended on-court demonstration with players.

Chalk Talk
Coach Hibson explains the sequence of drills needed to implement the defense and the reasons why the defense is successful. The points of emphasis of the Switching 2-3 Zone Defense are:

  • Force out-of-rhythm outside shots
  • Double team the high post
  • Double team the short corner
  • Triple team the low post
  • Clog/deny any passes from the sideline (wing or corner) to the post
  • Stop drives from the sideline (wing or corner) to the post
  • Guards and forwards are interchangeable and play both positions defensively
  • Most steals will come from corner-to-low post passes and skip passes
On the Court Drills
The problem with most zone defenses is the lack of pressure on the offense and the inability to protect both the post and the 3-point line. Coach Hibson was faced with this same problem and spent considerable time developing a simple yet effective solution. The drills are taught in a sequential order that builds on top of each other for a quick and effective teaching method. Each drill is aimed to progressively build your players' understanding of the rotations in order to make their in-game decisions second nature. Drills include:
  • 3-on-3 Closeout Drill
  • 5-on-3 "We Can Hustle" Drill (W=wing, C=clog, H=high post)
  • 5-on-5 Skip and Switch Drill
  • 7-on-5 High Post - Low Post Drill
Coach Hibson does a great job of talking through each part he teaches and the individual skills within each part. Regardless of whether you're a zone defense coach or a man defense coach, you will be able to utilize both styles with this defense.

In the last portion of the video, you will see the full version of the defense in action against the most common offensive alignment for this zone defense. You see how the defense prevents rhythm jump shots and protects the post by clogging the middle.

Now you can deliver man defense pressure out of a 2-3 zone while guarding the post and the 3-point line. Order now!

Great defense. Very unique defense. Not a video out there like this. I wish Dan Hibson had more videos out there of defenses he made up.

The defense reminded me a little of the Amoeba, but with a 23 set instead of the 113,different rotations, and the center staying inside at all times. I think the lead up drills were explained very well and the reasons that Coach Hibson designed and plays the defense were clearly outlined. He coached the drills with intensity and made clear coaching points throughout. The drills were progressive in their teaching and Coach was very clear with his terminology. If you want to play zone (really play it, not just hang around in the paint and hope someone misses shots!) and would like a different look than just the Syracuse 23 or standard 131 than this would be a good buy.
