I'm a new coach coaching a junior varsity boys basketball team (High School) and we are have problem scoring against zone defense. I have a strong forward , but a very weak point guard. What will be the play for my team to score against zone defense?

At the risk of sounding condescending, if you have problems scoring, plays won't help you. You have trouble against a zone because your kids can't shoot the ball and you may not affect that during the season. It doesn't make a difference what plays you run, because plays don't solve problems.

Without seeing your team, here is what I would recommend. run an offense they are comfortable with and is easy to execute. You, as a coach, should just let them run it and live with the result. Stop worrying about outscoring the other team. If I were you, I would concern myself with out-defending them.

It seems easy to me. If you can't score more points than they do, force them to score less points than you.
