College Basketball 101- Box and 1 zone defense

I figured some would like to know what this is.

- Forward on each block (closest to the basket)
- 2 players at the corners of the FT line
- 1 player covers man to man at the key

The forwards and 2 players at the corners play a zone (responsible for a small area around them and your best defensive player (or guard) is on the best offensive player on the other team.

This defense is used to cover the offensive superstar with 2 players as he dribble/penetrates.
