Here is what other media members that covering Kentucky basketball say they will remember most about Darius Miller as he goes through Senior Night.
Larry Glover, Larry Glover Live.
â€œThere are two things that I’ll remember about Darius. One, he was a terrific person and a great ambassador for UK. Two, If he had a more aggressive nature I think he could have been an All-American. To this day, I’m not sure he isn’t the best pure basketball player on the team.â€
Mike Pratt, UKâ€ˆRadio Network.
â€œI think the most important thing that Iâ€ˆwill remember is the guy is really a hard worker in practice and games and does not say anything. He just works. He really sets a good example that way. He is a very humble guy and very much a team player and has always been willing in his career to sacrifice personal accolades for the betterment of the team. Not many guys come in as (Kentucky) Mr. Basketball and are willing to do that. That really jumps out at me about him.
â€œHe has a very well rounded game, too. There are a lot of things he can do and not many things he canâ€™t do. I canâ€™t really think of thing he cannot do if he puts his mind to it. He can defend, score, rebound, block shots, pass, run the court. He is a five-tool guy as far as skills.â€ˆHe can do all those things.â€
Keith Taylor, Winchester Sun.
â€œWhen I think of Darius Miller, the word dedication comes to mind. Miller has been dedicated to his team, school, his coaches and his teammates and is one of the most humble and unselfish players to ever play at Kentucky. He has taken a backseat to talented freshman players during the past three years, but he hasn’t wavered in his dedication to the Wildcats. Miller knows there’s no I in team. I’m not surprised, because I followed him in high school and he was the same unselfish player back then. He has really improved his 3-point shooting and has really improved his overall game while standing in the shadows of future NBA superstars.â€

â€œDarius Miller is one of the classiest Cats. Period. A lot of players say they care about winning. A lot of players mean it, but some mean it more than others. Darius means it as much as anyone. The nicest thing I could say about Darius is that heâ€™s old school. Whatever you need, heâ€™ll do it.â€

“Iâ€™ve covered Darius Miller since he was an eighth grader at Mason County.Â The maturity he showed then, and continues to show is simply amazing. Thereâ€™s a reason why Darius has been praised by every coach heâ€™s played under.Â Weâ€™re talking High School, AAU, Team USA, and college.Â They all say the same thing, â€œHeâ€™s vital to our team or Heâ€™s one of our best players.â€Â Heâ€™s a player thatâ€™s content not measuring his game by a stat sheet, and thatâ€™s very rare in this day and age.Â Heâ€™s a guy who simply does what is needed, and he does it extremely well.Â Heâ€™ll definitely be missed.”
