|Defences 3-2 sliding zone Jack Bennett|
Unlike most other zones, the 3-2 sliding zone covers the perimeter with all five defenders.
Slider X3 takes the ball out front.
With the ball on the wing, X2 takes the ball, X3 is parallel to the ball, X4 dead fronts or 3/4's the low post, X1 and X5 have a foot in the lane with vision (e.g., a skip pass to 2), X5 helps on a lob pass to 5.
A big closes out hard on a pass to the corner, high hands, slightly short, they have to keep the ball in front of them. Slider X3 takes away the low post, and can cheat back up if there is no attacker there. X1 sinks a little further.
If X3 is late getting to 5 and there is a pass inside, X5 comes across and X1 sinks.
On a skip pass out top, X3 can't get there, so X1 covers 1 until bumped by X3, and if 1 passes to 2, X5 covers him until bumped back down by X1.
Tubby Smith - X1 takes 1 on the skip pass, exchanging spots with X3.
On a pass into the low post from the wing, there is a natural double team, with slider X3 coming down from the top. The other defenders sink.
