Coach Pete Miller: "There Were Some Great Moments This Year " - Apr 15, 2009

Pete Miller
I have talked with head-coach Pete Miller of ArisFriesland Leeuwarden, we looked back on the regular season, talked about his young and inexperienced team, missing of the playoffs and his predictions for next season. I think that they have shown a great performance throughout the season and that they have missed the playoffs through a lack of experience.

Now that the season is coming to an end, how do you feel about your teams progress and growth through the season?
I was satisfied with our development. I actually expected more development and with that, more wins. But looking back on the complete season, we were asking our young players (including the young American players) to climb a very high mountain and get us into the playoffs. We are disappointed for not reaching the playoffs but we must put that behind us. We must look at this season as a building season and take the next step in the coming season. With the amount of playing time our young guys got this year we expect to be way ahead in the coming season when we get started. I'm already looking forward to getting started with the new season already.

To say you had a young team this season would be an understatement. Did the lack of experienced players make this a difficult transition relative to other coaching positions youve taken?
Experience or the lack of it, as you say, was the prime factor in us not reaching the playoffs. First of all, we played with Americans that came directly out of college - more than any other team in the league. Then when I went to my bench, I was bringing in 19 and 20 year olds that are playing in this for the first time. Other coaches could turn their bench and bring in players that were, for example, 27 to 30 years old and have played here or somewhere else in Europe before.

As far as my own role in all of this is concerned, it was definitly difficult for me at times to deal with all the loses and in the manner we lost some of those games. But with the guys being so young, they were looking to me to be the leader and I continued to stay positive. At the same time I understand what is necessary to develop young players and above all, a coach has to have patience with young players. I showed faith in trust in these guys and I felt - acutally am still feeling in it - that they have faith and trust in me. They will be solid players in the future and we will profit from all of this.

Looking back, are you satisfied with your teams performance? Were there sufficient positives and were you able to lay a foundation for the continued development of basketball in Leeuwarden?
There were some great moments this year - and they shouldn't be overshadowed by the negatives. There were definitly moments where I could say: 'Wow, it would be nice if that player or the team could do that on a consistent basis!' But inconsistency is a quality that comes with youth and inexperience. The only way to change that is giving the players the opportunity to play and learn. It would have been nice to have made the playoffs - that would have been an earned reward for all the hard work the guys put in this year.

We have, all of us here in this club, laid a very solid foundation for the future of basketball in Leeuwarden. The club is very well organized and does so many things for me and the players, we have developed a major building block in our strength and conditioning areas with highly qualified partners and the players have a very professional training and practice structure here. Lastly, we have developed a very exciting connection to our fans and they have paid us back with great support and consistent attendance.

This year we invested in the future. Next year we will have a very nice ROI (=Return on Investment.) I will work together with our manager Gert Schurer and we will begin soon to put our team together for the coming season. I am pretty certain that we will be adding one or two experienced players into the combination. I actually am really excited about our prospects for the coming season.

I don't like to lose and it is something that I am not used to and don't want to get used to it. One thing I have learned through the years however, is not to ever push the panic button and that nothing will ever replace hard and thorough work. Especially during difficult situations, think things through and find reasonable and logical solutions the problems that are confronting you. That will be the way we approach the future.

Talk about one or two guys that stand out as being underrated contributors to your team's success?
First of all let me say, Matt Bauscher wasn't a surprise to me. I saw what he could do and was convinced he could develop into a good player. I also knew that Bundesliga Clubs in Germany were interested in Matt, confirming my feelings. We were able to promise Matt a lot of playing time and that was the deciding factor for Matt choosing Aris Friesland.

But the most exciting things that happened this year was the development of Jayme Miller and Keith Spencer. The guys are the really important for us not only in the way they play but in the way they approach the game and how they handle themselves within the team. Both are wonderful guys. But, again, our research about the two guys told us that before we signed them. It was a very special thing to coach them.

What are your predictions for next season?
After all I said above, It is obvious that I have a very postive perspective for the coming season. It is, however, very, very early to make predictions about next season - this one isn't even over yet! There are so many factors that need to be touched on. We have to have discussions with our partner, The Eiffel Towers, about players. We need to see how many players we can reatin from our present team. And we must wait to see which new players we will sign.

So, I can't make a prediction at this point. But I will promise that we will be better next year than we were this year.


Thanks Pete for this interview and see you next season.
