Darius Miller - Mason Co.


Recommended Posts

Having watched the tenth region semi-finals and finals, I must say I was very impressed with the skill set this young man has. To be 6'6 and handle the ball , shoot and pass like he does is very impressive. He was unstoppable when he had the ball in his hands and was definitely the MVP of the tenth region tournament as a sophomore.

 

I think he has the potential to play Division 1 basketball at the highest level if he continues to improve and fill out. Maybe Tubby can finally work out a trip to Maysville next year to see him play. Hopefully he has learned from his mistakes.

 

Does anyone know which schools are after Miller now?

I'm wondering if Mason County's band will play "Rocky Top" at Rupp. I see a lot of Royal fans stand and clap during UT's "Rocky Top". How well will that go over?

To get back on subject, I was at the Fieldhouse Saturday night and I must say that Miller was impressive. To defend the best player on the opposition and then have to carry the offense at times, doesn't seem like this kid is that young. Having two more years of high school basketball, Darius Miller might have the brightest future I've ever seen in a player that young.

Would anyone agree that Miller could be a tough guard at the next level? I think that guards would definitely have a tough time containing him and I'm not sure if I see many swingmen being able to guard a 6'6" ballhandler that can also see the court exceptionally. Totally assuming that he will not grow anymore. If he grows to be 6'8", we have a very special player to look out for and maybe he'll have his hometown fans bleeding blue instead of his alma mater Rocky Toppin'.

I made the trip to Maysville early Friday afternoon and spent some time down at the OTB, getting a little work done at the "oval office" if you get my drift.

 

Anyway, the Vols were on the TV and the Maysville citizens were all glued to the game rooting for C-Lo, not necessarily the Vols.

 

It seemed that their success/failure criteria was based soley on whether Chris took a shot, hit or missed, and seemed upset whenever he didn't touch the ball on offense.

 

I'm not sure that all of the Maysville home-folk have taken to rooting for UT, but moreover rooting for their hometown product - Chris Lofton.

 

They all stayed glued to the TVs for the next game and cheered for UK.

A brighter future than OJ Mayo? He was that age last year. Not picking at your post just wondering if you think he is in that league. I haven't seen him since 04 and he was an 8th grader, but I wouldn't put him up there with OJ.
