with Archie Miller,
Indiana University Head Coach
former University of Dayton Head Coach, 2017 A-10 Coach of the Year;

Archie Miller is one of the brightest minds in coaching today. His high-octane offensive teams at Dayton were some of the most feared teams in all of college basketball. His teams relied on putting pressure on opponents with their ability to shoot the 3-ball. Coach Miller has developed an intense shooting program that aims to stretch a player's talents to the extreme.
Utilized primarily during spring workouts and carried on into the regular season, Miller unveils 12 drills that he utilizes to develop high-efficiency shooters. The shooting workout is designed to get an individual player 900 game-like shots in a 40 minute window. It's not only designed to physically challenge players, but also mentally challenge athletes as well. Players will utilize his meticulous charting to tangibly see their growth as a shooter throughout the course of the 6-week session.
Shooting Program Criteria
The first 10 minutes of the video sees Coach Miller outline the specifics of the program. Discussed are:
- The frequency at which Miller conducts the shooting workout
- The duration of each individual workout
- The intensity level at which each workout should be conducted
- How to track improvement/success in regards to shooting accuracy
- How to distinguish the program in order to make it unique
Perimeter Shooting Drills
With drills progressing in nature and executed at game speed, each player is pushed beyond his or her comfort level in order to achieve maximum levels of improvement. Each drill contains a timed component along with a built in goal regarding the number of shots attempted and the number of shots made.
In all, 12 drills are on full display that involve all components related to shooting:
- Catch-and-shoot accuracy
- Shooting off of the dribble
- Shooting while on the move
- Mid-range accuracy
- 3-point accuracy
- Shooting while fighting exhaustion
One particular drill of note is the Hubie Browns. This on-the-move drill helps players focus on the fundamentals of their footwork. Wing to wing, top to top and wing to other wing shots are taken. This timed drill is not only a great fundamental drill, but also - as with every drill Miller introduces - a fantastic conditioner. Players will keep track of their numbers and will always have a goal to shoot for.
Coach Miller adds two game-like post shooting drills late in the video. These drill can easily be added into a practice and will immediately help your bigs develop the shots they'll use in a game.
As the sport of basketball transitions into a spread-the-floor, positionless game that relies more and more on perimeter shooting, coaches have had to adapt and build players that are more capable of being a scoring threat out to 3-point range. This video will help you do just that!
