The sample size at Arizona might be smaller by comparison to his peers, but the rest of the résumé speaks for itself. Sean Miller has an outstanding track record in international play.
Since 2011, the veteran head coach, who is entering his ninth season at the helm of the Wildcats, has won two gold medals with USA Basketball and earned a pair of blowout victories with Arizona in the Bahamas. He will look to add to that this month with a three-game tour in Spain, which is streaming live and available for replay on FloHoops.
Miller has seen success at the highest of levels abroad. He won a gold medal as an assistant coach with the U.S. men's U18 national team at the FIBA Americas Championship in 2014 and was the head coach for a dominant U.S. men's U19 national team, which went 7-0 with an average margin of victory of 25.3 points at the FIBA U19 World Championship, to win the gold again in 2015.
When he was a point guard at Pittsburgh, he even won a gold medal with USA Basketball while playing at the World University Games in 1991.
So as the Wildcats finish the allotted 10 practices before taking their first foreign trip since 2012, understand they have one of the best coaches in the game -- college or abroad -- set to lead them.
