Recruiting at DI for Triangle and Man2Man Topic

What abilities should be recruited for the triangle offense and Man 2 man defense?

DEFENSE is more or less the same for all sets.   There are some subtle differences but a good defender in man is a good defender in zone and press.

Triangle is supposed to emphasize passing and perimeter a little more (I think) than the others.

I play exclusively Triangle / M2M these days. I think one of the big benefits of this combo is that Triangle doesn't require every player to have scoring ability, which means you can go after high ATH / DEF types who don't have much PER / LP.  You can be pretty successful with 12 good defenders and just 4-5 good scorers on your roster.

I've had a lot of success with Triangle/M2M with my St. Mary's TX team in D2 Iba.  I would echo what bhansalid00 had to say, with an addition or 2.  You should have 2-3 scorers in your starting lineup and 2-3 off the bench.  Focus on ATH and DE for all 12 players.  Your PG should not be one of your key scorers.  Focus on ATH, SPD, DE, BH and P at PG.  I've also found that big men with a little SPD tend to be pretty good scorers in Triangle.
