      Unbalance the floor—When the ball is rotated to one side of the zone, the players on the opposite side will boxout the weakside of the zone (stopping the zone from shifting back over) . When the ball is rotated back the other way, a player from the original strongside "cuts" through and unbalances the floor by creating a 3 offense on 2 defense situation. This is sometimes referred to as 'overloading the floor'.
