MARTIN TALKS ABOUT ZONE
“It’s been helpful for us the last two games since we’re very long and athletic. It’s helped us a lot ... I didn’t know we were going to go into the zone for the Kentucky game, but we did go over it a little at practice. I wasn’t expecting it. But when we came out, coach said ‘We’re going to go into the zone and try it and give it a little look.’ It started off working, so we’ve just stayed in it.”
- On the decision for the team to switch to zone
“I would say that. He’s happy about it, though, because we’re getting stops and playing much better defense in the zone.”
- On if he thinks it's been hard for Jones, who prefers man defense
“With the energy level he brings and his aggressiveness at the top, he frustrates those guys at the top. He help us a lot.”
- On the difference
makes atop the zone
“I try to use my length to contest shots and mess them up, get them off their rhythm.”
- On what his role is in the zone
