Diagram 1-6 Diagram 1-7 The triangle-and-two (Diagrams 1-8 and 1-9) is geared to detain the two best offensive players or scorers. There are two forms of the triangle-and-two. Both play man-to-man defense on two players. One triangle has a one-man front with the other two players stationed behind the one player in the block areas. The other triangle features a defender in each elbow area with a taller player under the basket.

Examine when and where shots will be taken. You'll find yourself forming triangles (players on each block and one in front of the basket) and gaining pivotal numerical advantages. " The Seven Triangles: Creating Overloads You're all familiar with the shape of a triangle-a three-sided figure with three points. Page 22 On a basketball court triangles are formed by three players, 12 to 15 feet from each other, and each a threat to score. Usually triangles are formed by quick player movement and our zone attack is no exception.

This is particularly important given some zones' tendency to ''let up" after a certain amount of time or number of passes. I have found that some zone defenses don't sustain a high level of effort or intensity. After "X" number of passes individual defenders lack concentration and aggressiveness. Often, all it takes is patience to find a weak link: a player who doesn't fulfill his role or a weak area that suddenly appears. Continuities are geared for one or two passes and a high-percentage shot.
