The Triangle-and-Two is a hybrid between a man-to-man defense in which each defensive player is responsible for marking a player on the other team, and a zone defense in which each defensive player is responsible for guarding an area of the court. In a Triangle-and-Two Defense, three players play zone defense, and align themselves in a triangle protecting the basket, with typically the power forward and center playing directly under the basket, and the small forward playing towards the foul line. The shooting guard and point guard in a Triangle-and-Two defense play man to man defense, typically marking the opposing team's best offensive players on the perimeter.
