There are many ways to attack a zone. This article suggests three strategies:
- Play your best ballhandler in the middle (high post)
- Attack behind the zone (short corner)
- Attack gaps in the zone
Another article has some other suggestions:
Another strategy is to attack using outside shots (three pointers or long two's), but such this method is only effective if you have several good/accurate long range shooters.
In general, all of these strategies attempt to take advantage of the zone's gaps in defensive coverage. Good ball movement can pull the defenders out of position, leaving your players with a (hopefully) easy, undefended shot.
