Introduction to the “World Famous” Temple Match-up Zone Defense
According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:“Match-up zone defense is a type of defense used in the game of basketball.It is commonly referred to as a "combination" defense, as it combinescertain aspects of man-to-man defense and zone defense. Perhaps the mostfamous user of the match-up zone was John Chaney, former head basketballcoach at Temple University.”“With the match-up zone defense, the on-ball defender will play tight as ifhe was playing man-to-man. At the same time, the zone away from the ballwill resemble "help-side" man-to-man defense. This creates one of theadvantages for the match-up zone, as it may confuse the opponent as towhat defense you are actually playing. The match-up zone also resembles a"switching man-to-man" defense, where the big men stay down low in thepost and the guards stay around the perimeter.”For the first time in history, this e-book is the only basketball coachingbooklet on the “World Famous” Temple Match-up Zone Defense. His match-up zone defense helped Coach Chaney’s Temple Owls to the Big Dance. Hehad 23 of his 24 teams play in the post-season tournaments with 17 NCAAtournament appearances. His teams had 12 straight appearances in theMarch madness brackets from 1990 to 2001.
