Sean Miller Arizona Wildcats Zone Offense
Here are some great notes on the Sean Miller Arizona Wildcats Zone Offense from the 2016 Nike Championship Basketball Clinic in Kansas City.
Ariona Basketball sells itself. The weather is great, the facilities are state of the art and the McKale Center is packed every night, where the Arizona Wildcats have led the Pac-12 in attendance each year since 1985 and almost never lose.
The Arizona basketball program has history with Lute Olsen who led them to 11 conference championships between 1985-2005, a run that included five trips to the Final Four and one national title powered by Miles Simon and Mike Bibby in 1997. Arizona Basketball has always been good for the last thirty years, but now Sean Miller is looking to take it to a even higher place.
With the commitment of explosive 6’6 wing Terrance Ferguson last week, Sean Miller locked down his 4th five star recruit of the class of 2016. Ferguson is joining a group that has point guard Kobi Simmons, shooting guard Rawle Alkins and power forward Lauri Markkanen.
Arizona Basketball isn’t just recruiting the west coast, Ferguson is from Dallas, Alkins is from New York, Simmons is from Georgia, Markkanen is from Finland. In his seven years on the job, Sean Miller has built this thing up to a national power with international reach. If a five-star star recruit isn’t going to Duke or Kentucky, there’s a good chance they’re choosing Arizona.
Sean Miller can point to five NBA first rounders and three lottery picks (Gordon, Stanley Johnson and Derrick Williams) when he’s out on the recruiting trail. Coach Miller can point to a system that emphasizes defense but still lets its best athletes get up the floor. He can point to three Elite Eights in the last six years, and the chance that the five-star recruit can finally be the player that pushes this program back into the Final Four.
