PAC-12 Coach of the Year Sean Miller covers everything you need to know to put even the best defenses on their heels! Combining footage from two clinics, Miller arms you and your players with aggressive methods for attacking pressure defenses.

Creating Space vs Pressure
Get insights on how to create space with change of speed, body contact, glide dribbling and change of direction to get the ball in bounds, open up the floor and create offense. In the Big-X Passing Drill, Miller simulates the chaos of half-court trapping defenses and works on attacking them in an organize manner by establishing simple rules for your players to follow.

Full Court In-Bounds Situations
Coach Miller takes you through full-court inbounds situations where you can and cannot run the baseline. Each scenario allows for three outlets to advance the ball up the court: sideline, middle, and the crackback. Miller’s aggressive approach spreads the pressure thin forcing indecision on the defense.

Whether you are facing a 1-2-1-1 or a 2-2-1 zone press, Miller’s press offense will get the ball inbounds and effectively into your offense. Down by one at the end of the game and need to go the length of the court for a basket? It’s covered here.

Attacking Pressure Zones
“Ping passing” keeps your players from over-dribbling against extended zone pressure. In Arizona’s “Logo” set, the offense moves the ball from side-to-side looking to get it to the middle of the floor and forcing the defense to make decisions. Miller teaches you his “Flood” concept which guarantees open opportunities for open layups and three-point looks.
