Darius Miller: All-Glue Team Captain
After a couple of rousing tributes by Glenn and Alex, it's nice to see the national media recognize the sheer awesomeness that is Kentucky's Darius Miller. Kentucky's senior leader was named the All-Glue Team Captain by Sports Illustrated. He's the second Wildcat to be honored as captain. Back in the day, Gerald Fitch was captain of the 2002 All-Glue Team. Chuck Hayes was also a member of the 2003 team, as was Derrick Jasper in 2008.
As for Miller, this is my favorite paragraph in the article, penned by SI.com's:
Miller understands that starting a game is not nearly as important as finishing it. According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, during games in which Kentucky has entered the final 10 minutes leading by five points or fewer this season, Miller has been on the floor for 80 out of 100 minutes. He shot 75 percent from the floor and made 13-of-14 free throws during those spans. Not for nothing does Calipari say of his senior, "He doesn't compete. He completes."
"He doesn't compete. He completes." I'm going to start using that in my everyday lingo.
Congrats to Miller for the honor!
