A 1-3-1 Zone Moment

Early in the second half of a 54-45 victory against Fairfield, the Virginia men’s basketball team broke out a 1-3-1 zone. For one possession. Cavalier coach Tony Bennett, of course, is known for the man-to-man Pack-Line defense and he very rarely uses zone defense even as a change of pace strategy. The one trip ended in a missed Fairfield basket.

Joe Harris laughed when asked about the 1-3-1 zone.

“Yeah, one possession,” Harris said with a grin throughout his answer. “You probably won’t see that too often. I think it was just kind of a way to change things up, spur of the moment maybe, but I don’t think that will happen too much more the rest of the season.”
