Defending The Short Corner - 2-3 Zone Defense
One of the biggest threats to a zone defense is the short corner.
A good offense can score multiple ways from the short corner…
- Immediate attack to the hoop from the short corner.
- Pass to a cutter… especially the high post player diving to the basket.
- Kick out to a wide open shooter.
If you don’t properly defend the short corner, it can be one of the major reasons you lose.
In the video clip from Al Marshall's Aggressive 2-3 Zone Defense "The Defense Your Opponents Will Hate!", he takes you through the situation with the ball in the short corner.
Coach Al Marshall shows you how to properly defend the short corner. He shows you defensive techniques that will lead to poor passes. Poor passes will lead to more turnovers, more time to rotate and defend shooters, and low percentage shots for the offense.
