4 on 3 zone

FIBA Assist, issue 24

12 players.

4 attackers play against 3 zone defenders. Attackers must pass to the teammate who is open for an uncontested shot.

On a stop or score, X5, X6 and X7, along with X8, will attack three zone defenders at the other basket.

If the defenders play man-to-man defence, they must always defend the ballhandler and the two attackers closest to the ball.
