Duke Blue Devils Zone Quick Hitter
Zone 1-4 Drag and Push
This zone play starts in a 1-4 high and a wing entry pass to 2 on the left side (Allen). 4 and 5 step out to screen for 2, and 2 quickly passes to 4 popping out to the wing. 5 stays put and screens for 2 cutting into the middle of the zone and continuing to screen as 4 drives the ball up. If the bottom zone defender stays with 4 on the drive (or even gets engaged in the ball screen), Allen quickly cuts out to the wing and looks for a throwback pass from 4 for an open 3-point shot.
