NCAA Tournament X’s & O’s – Kansas

By Wes Kosel

We are seeing some great zone quick hitters from Bill Self in this game. In this play, Kansas runs a guard across the floor to the ball-side corner. With this cut, the bottom outside zone defender moves out to the corner to protect against the shot. 5 screens in on the middle zone defender as 4 flashes to the ball for an open shot.
