I've noticed an alarming trend with Sean Miller's offense over the past couple years when playing against a zone defense; it becomes nonexistent. The teams resort to passing the ball along the perimeter and then jacking up deep threes. I used to think this was an issue of talent, the Cats simply weren't skilled enough slashers to penetrate without turning it over, or they weren't big enough to lob it in to the post. But now that the team is stacked, I'm not sure what the excuse is.
My theory is that Sean Miller's teams aren't comfortable playing against zone defense because they don't get to practice against it sufficiently in practices. How can Miller simulate a skilled zone defense for his practices if none of his guys have much experience playing zone? I'm curious to hear everyone's thoughts on this.
