We ran a hybrid of Lute Olson's 1-1-3 zone defense and a box-and-one. For simplicity, we'll just call it the Rotating Diamond and One Defense, because that's what it looks like. The only difference between Lute Olson's 1-1-3 zone defense is that we only have one player on the top of the zone. Bottom rotations are the same.
The Diamond and One is the perfect changeup to either a man-to-man or zone defense. It serves three purposes: to contain the opposing team’s best player, to take away the strengths of that player, and to disrupt the opponent’s rhythm on offense. This defense is designed to shut down the other team’s best player by cutting off open looks.
