Avoiding Foul Trouble

If you're team is suffering from foul trouble you may want to consider running a zone defense. When you are in a zone you're less likely to commit fouls because there are fewer oppourtunities for the offense to attack the basket. It can also slow the game down or force the opposition to take quick shots before you settle into your spots. In addition, many teams don't spend a great deal of time working on their zone offense and therefore settle for open shots far away from the basket.
