defense "designed to stop three pointers"

It's one thing to watch your opponent continually find open looks on three pointers.  It's frustrating when they hit almost fifty percent of those open looks.  But what's hard to take is hearing the coach and team say they designed their defense to take away the three point opportunities.

But if that was true, why did the Hoyas shift to zone, as they've done all season, on under the basket out of bounds plays.  by my count, more than half of the Marquette three's came against a zone that was implemented to defense the out of bounds play.  While they were not all off designed out of bounds plays, the sad fact is once this team sets the zone they don't yet know how to shift defense during a possession. To underline this and how important it was to the outcome, the hoyas actually played man to man off an out of bounds play.

So exactly how was the defense designed to stop the three when for 36 minutes the default defense in an out of bounds situation was to go to a zone?
