: Hey guys - heres my question, and this may sound dumb so forgive me for asking it but, suppose my MIddle School team is running 5-Out on offense and the opposing team is playing a zone defense. And suppose the defense doesnt change, they remain in a basic 2-3 zone. Do I stop running the 5-out offense? (I told you this was a dumb question) - LOL
: Im assuming the answer would be you shouldnt run 5-Out against a team that plays a zone defense>? The problem I have is most of the teams we play against usually play a basic zone defense and my team runs a good 5-Out offense - Thanks for any advice.
If you know they are going to run a zone, why donít you practice something different to counteract the zone? Try putting someone in the high post and go 4 out. Or, put someone on the block, some one high post and have 3 guards on the perimeter. The answer is YES, time to run something different.
