Best Zone Plays in NCAA Division 1
I was sitting around last weekend watching some of the HUGE college upsets, and the commentator made some offbeat comment about this guy’s field goal shooting and the defense he was up against…
Nothing very profound, but it got me wondering about FG% and defensive pairings…
The more I mulled over the various combinations in my head, the more I forgot about the game and started jotting down some notes.
Kinda like a “what would happen if…” scenario…
Here’s my premise:
“What if you took the absolute best field goal % teams in the NCAA today (D1 only) and put this up against the zone…and then put everything into one playbook?”
Step 1: Go to the leaderboard for the 2019-2020 season.
Step 2: Sort the list by order of the top 20 FG% made.
Step 3: Produce 104 pages of the best shooting teams vs the zone defense in the country, as of this writing!
Got some good shooters on your team?
Playing against a zone defense a lot?
You can have some serious fun with this book…and most likely win a few more games along the way!
I intentionally created this so you can plug these into your scheme at your very next practice.
