This quick hitting play is from an old Xavier University Basketball Coaching Newsletter.

Run this against a 2-3 zone as an entry into your zone attack., or as a set play to get the ball inside.

At the bottom of the page, I have listed some more links to other zone plays.

1 passes to 3, then cuts to screen the middle man in the zone.

2 replaces one at the point.
