2-2-1 Full Court Zone Press 

A 2-2-1 full court zone defense looks like this. The main idea is to trap the ball handler as soon as he passes the half court line and along the side line. By doing this the ball handler will be unable to pass back to the other side of the court. 

An example of this would be in this picture. Let's say the ball is inbounded to the side where player 1 is. Player 1 will force the ball handler to the side line and player 3 so that the ball handler can be trapped in the trapping area. 
Player 5 needs to be athletic enough to cover the whole back court.
When players 1 and 3 trap the ball handler, players 2, 4 and 5 still cover their zoned areas that is shown by each color.
