Bottom Line: A fundamental idea is the concept of potential; the probability of the offense scoring the next goal minus the probability that the next goal is made by the defense.We develop categorical as well as continuous models, and obtain optimal strategies for both offense and defense.A main result is that the optimal defensive strategy is to minimize the maximum potential of all offensive strategies.

ABSTRACT
We set up a game theoretic framework to analyze a wide range of situations from team sports. A fundamental idea is the concept of potential; the probability of the offense scoring the next goal minus the probability that the next goal is made by the defense. We develop categorical as well as continuous models, and obtain optimal strategies for both offense and defense. A main result is that the optimal defensive strategy is to minimize the maximum potential of all offensive strategies.

pone.0125453.g002: Schematic figure of a wing changeover opening in team handball.The offensive players are denoted by triangles and the defensive players are marked by cirles. The dashed line displays the movement path of lw and the solid lines refer to the possible moves for r1.

Mentions: Consider a wing change over, which is a frequently occurring offensive opening in team handball. In a wing change over, one of team A’s wings repositions, with or without ball possession, to the opposite side of the court. The pivot subsequently screens on the inner side of r1, see Fig 2. We denote the players contributing in offensive play by: left wing (lw), left side back (lb), center back (cb), right side back (rb), right wing (rw) and pivot. The defensive positions are numbered from the side: left 1 (l1), left 2 (l2), left 3 (l3), right 3 (r3), right 2 (r2), right 1 (r1).
