Zone Lob Plays by Wes Kosel
Attached in this playbook are two quick hitter zone lob plays from the college level. The first play comes from Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears. Baylor is currently 1st in the Big 12 coming into Monday night. Drew and the Bears have compiled a 17-4 record so far this season. The second lob play comes from Division II University of Colorado – Colorado Springs. The Mountain Lions play in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, one of the best in Division II. When we played UCCS last season, Derek White (transferred to CU-Boulder), caught a dunk on this lob play.
