    I thought it was a genius move and was impressed at how well the guys knew it considering they also play a 2-3. Zone is a risky proposition IMO in that you need to do it well if you're going to do it at all. Usually doing it well means taking up a good amount of practice time on it - and if you do that it better end up being something the guys get and not time wasted. I was impressed. Also saw Billy get a lot of twitter praise for the move.

    Yea. We have the size for it and the seniors who have been apart of the system long enough to know exactly how to run it. Hill got lost in it a few times I saw as did Frazier but guys like Wilbekin, Yueg, Young, and Prather have been here a long time and have learned every inch of the defenses Donovan will run.

    Matchup 2-3. They extend it almost like man to man to take away the three and really lift the center high to take away the flashes to the high post, while their wings use their length to take away baseline action. Like any zone, though, penetration can break it down.

    The key to our 1-3-1 was how far we extended it, and how aggressively we played that first pass. We made it very difficult for KU to dictate their offense, often forcing them out of it early in the possession and far from the hoop.
    Very, very well played.

    a variation of a 2-3 zone . . . in which they match-up and instill some man-to-man principles.
