Descripción

Coach Steve Biddison has coached basketball for over 20 years where he has not only become known as a very innovative defensive coach, but a coach whose teams execute the half court offensive game to perfection.  Four times he has taken over programs that had not had a winning record in years and each time turned them into a playoff team in his first year with the program.  Most notable was the year he took over a program that had only won two games the previous year and four games over the previous three combined years.  By instilling a new philosophy centered around the HEART (Coach Biddison details this philosophy in his popular book Coaching From the HEART, which is also available in both ebook and paperback form) and a new style of offense and defense, Coach Biddison took that team three rounds in the playoffs in his very first year in the program.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

There is not a successful coach alive who did not learn from other great coaches.  I have had the privilege to learn from some great high school basketball coaches.  Much of my coaching success, I owe to the coaches I have worked under.  Art Denney, Ron Rogers, and Bill Avey, thank you very much for your influence you had on my coaching

the evolution of the flex

match-up zone defense

––––––––

It has been widely accepted that defense wins championships.  Even teams that put up big offensive numbers  know that they must play defense if they are going to win consistently.  In basketball, there are many different types and philosophies of defense.  Some coaches like to full court press, some stress man to man defense while others play straight zones.  Some coaches like to trap and gamble for steals, others play conservative position defense in order to not be beat for layups. 

The basketball purists would argue that a man to man defense is the best defense.  They would point out that you can adjust how much pressure you put on the ball from this defense and you can adjust how much denial you play on those off the ball.  I cannot argue with the logic of a good man to man defense.  If run correctly, it is perhaps the best defense.  However, when it is not run correctly, or the athletes running it are not the best athletes (which is often the case), it can run into problems. It is susceptible to being hurt by a good screening offense.  Add that to the fact that every team has a variety of man to man offenses to run against it, the average team with average athletes might find trouble running a straight man to man defense.

Many teams run a 2-3 zone.  I have on many occasions.  Sometimes that was our primary defense.  But to be honest, I never liked the 2-3 zone.  Perhaps it was because I did not know how to coach it effectively, but I often thought the 2-3 zone bred laziness.  And again, teams had offenses to run against it.  I know there are many out there that would disagree with me on my thoughts about the 2-3 zone because they have run it very effectively.  I don’t doubt it.  I have seen it run effectively.  Again, perhaps it was because I did not know how to coach it that well, but I never personally had a team that could play shut out defense playing mainly the 2-3 zone. 

One year, as I began to make my preparations for the upcoming season, I was toying with the idea of trying something new defensively.  In my first 15 years of coaching basketball, I think I had only two teams play a 1-3-1 zone against me.  And it did bother us because it was something we were not used to.  But with some adjustments at half time,
