Tennessee State University senior Patrick Miller is coming down to his final games as a Tiger. Miller, a 6-foot-1 guard from Chicago, has been a prominent player for the TSU Tigers since he set foot on campus in 2010. This is evidenced by him being on the 2010-11 All-OVC Newcomer Team and winning the 2010-11 OVC Freshman of the Year. Miller continued the standard that he set in his freshman campaign, improving each year he’s laced it up for the Big Blue Tigers. His standard has garnered such accolades as: 2012 OVC All-Tournament Team, 2012-13 Boxtorow HBCU Second Team All-American, 2012-13 Preseason All OVC Team, 2012-13 All-OVC First Team, and 2013-14 Preseason All OVC Team, in-addition to the ones received in his 1st season on John A. Merritt Blvd.
The 2013-14 Tigers are in the midst of a rough season that has not went the way TSU coach Travis Williams, Patrick Miller and the rest of the TSU Family thought it would. In a down year, Miller and his tag-team partner MJ Rhett have been bright spots for the Tigers. These two young men have led from the front and brought their "A-game" every night the men in Blue have balled this season. Miller is 6th in the nation in scoring averaging, 23.2 ppg. Along with the scoring prowess, Miller is averaging 4.4 boards and 4 dimes a game. Multiple coaches in the Ohio Valley Conference have said that Miller is one of the toughest covers in the league, due to his ability to score the ball in multiple fashions, especially his dribble-drive game with his electrifying finishes at the rim. As the Tigers close out their season this week with Morehead State and Eastern Kentucky, take some time to enjoy and marvel in the special talent, that is one, Patrick Miller.
