We are preparing for tournament play and our opening round opponent plays a triangle and 2 defense against the other team's guards. How would you attack this type of defense?

Sorry if this reply is too late but I would say it depends on what you run for offense.

We run motion and we wouldn't change anything. Our screening, cutting, and spacing will get all our players open against a triangle and 2. If the 2 defenders are denying extra hard, we might be a little more deliberate about setting good screens and make sure they make quick decisions (cut or screen right away) when one pass from the ball... so the offense doesn't get stagnant when those "2" players are one pass away from ball. But that's something they are supposed to do anyway so we'd be pretty comfortable running something we are used to against the junk defense.

If you haven't played yet and share what offense you run... maybe we'll have some ideas. But I generally keep it simple and just play like usual.
