Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Darius Miller Makes Final 14 For The World University Games Team

Darius Miller has made the final 14 players for Matt Painter's World University Games team.  According to Jeff Goodman of CBS, here are the remaining 14 players with 2 more to be cut:

Guards

Marcus Denmon, Missouri
Ashton Gibbs, Pittsburgh
Scoop Jardine, Syracuse
John Jenkins, Vanderbilt
Orlando Johnson, UC Santa Barbara
Ray McCallum, Detroit
Shabazz Napier, UConn

Forwards

Tim Abromaitis, Notre Dame
Draymond Green, Michigan State
Trevor Mbakwe, Minnesota
Darius Miller, Kentucky
Aaric Murray, West Virginia

Centers

JaMychal Green, Alabama
Greg Mangano, Yale

From my perspective, the most likely cuts remaining would come from the back court, although one could come from the forwards.  It's hard to imagine either of the centers getting cut at this point, because you need a starter and a backup at every position, but Aaric Murray, who Goodman lists as a forward, is 6'10" and could play center.

I think Miller's likely to make it because of his flexibility.  He can either play the wing forward or a bit of th 2-guard if Painter wants to go big.  This looks to me like a very competitive team Painter is putting together.
