Zone defense was created by former Nebraska coach Evan Stone prior to the 1937 season. His reason was to deceive the offense into throwing away from man coverage, which was actually throwing directly into zones.

Utah State basketball coach Don Hollywood witnessed this for himself and decided to mimic that on the basketball court, starting in 1939 with the 1-2-2.
