NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Darius Miller had every reason to be upset.
Ticked off. Downright mad.
The Kentucky senior guard with true bluegrass pedigree was
heading to the bench, replaced by a kid who just turned 18.
Miller's reaction? Nothing. Not a public peep.
If Miller has an ego, it can't compete with his drive to win it
all with the Wildcats. He might just pull the true Kentucky
trifecta in the process - Mr. Basketball for the state, Kentucky
high school champion and an NCAA title winner for the school he
grew up loving.
Miller may or may not start in New Orleans when the Wildcats
(36-2) play Louisville (30-9) on Saturday in the national
semifinals. It hardly matters.
He's not a sixth man; he's Kentucky's sixth starter.
