UCLA ATO`s - 15 Quick Hitters That Can Help You In A Pinch


These 15 quick hitters for after time out situations are great for high school level and higher talent teams. 

UCLA actions are great for spreading the floor and getting quick looks for defenders to fall asleep by not jumping to the ball on passes. A lot of these looks show glimpses for quick scores next to the rim. After the initial action is ran, these sets break down into counter actions with 2, 3, and even possibly 4 other scoring looks.



The Coach


Tyler Miller

Assistant Basketball Coach @ Montana Tech University


Assistant Coach Tyler Miller begins his fourth season here with the Montana Tech men’s basketball program. Miller is the program’s lead assistant coach after spending six seasons (2014-2020) at NCAA Division I member, University of Central Arkansas of the ASUN Conference. 

Since his arrival with the Orediggers, Miller has help contribute to 69 wins in 3 seasons, 2 Frontier Conference Regular Season Championships, and 2 Frontier Conference Tournament Championships. On top of these achievements, Miller was a part of Montana Tech’s first ever NAIA Final 8 appearance in school’s history this past season in Kansas City, MO.

During his time as an assistant coach in Conway, Arkansas, Miller helped lead UCA to their first winning season in over a decade in 2018. He also coached eight all-conference performers, including the conference Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, Freshman of the Year, and three all-defensive team honorees.

“Tyler has grown into a terrific basketball coach over these past three seasons here at Tech,” Coach Hiatt said.

“He was also able to learn from fantastic tacticians and coaches, Russ Pennell and Anthony Boone. He was heavily involved with all aspects of the UCA program and is very familiar with the
Frontier Conference, being a successful former student-athlete. His experience will make the transition into his role here smooth. Montana Tech basketball is very fortunate to be able to add him to the program.”

A native of Chandler, Arizona, Miller was an outstanding high school player at Chandler-Basha High School, where he was a four-time All-Arizona Republic player, before beginning his collegiate career at Western Colorado University in 2009-10 where he scored 168 points and collected 78 rebounds in 26 games. He finished his basketball career at the Montana Western in Dillon. Miller, a three-year starter, helped his team to 67 wins, a conference championship, and two NAIA National Tournaments, including an Elite 8 appearance in 2013. He scored 768 points, grabbed 390 rebounds and dished out 117 assists during his career in the Frontier Conference.

In addition, Miller made the Frontier Conference Academic All-Conference Team all three years and was a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete two times. Miller graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014 from Montana-Western. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a minor in Computer Information Technologies. Miller earned his master’s degree in Instructional Technologies at University Central Arkansas.

"I am so fortunate to coach here at Montana Tech," Miller said. “To work under a first-class Athletic Director in Matt Stepan, and learn from one of the best coaches in the NAIA, Coach Hiatt, I am grateful for every opportunity that I am given as the lead assistant coach.

“My overall goal is to take on any task given to me and try to promote Montana Tech as one of the best schools in the country both in academia and athletics. I can’t thank Coach Hiatt and our Athletic Director, Matt Stepan enough.”
