Miller: credit where credit is due

Post by LarryTheAggie » November 27th, 2020, 6:53 pm

Miller is shooting 45.5% from 3. Who knows if he can keep it up, but he is also taking smarter shots and driving to the basket more. Got to give him credit.

Miller has done a fantastic job being a role player this year. Other than three or four threes that were probably a little bit quick and ill-advised he is taking very very good threes. He's also driven to the paint and shot some mid-range shots which is really good. I think the big key for him this year will be able to keep his confidence and take good shots, that three from the beautiful pass from bean for the 3 was thing of beauty. He is definitely exceeding my expectations this year.

I loved the emotion and passion he played with today. He was firing up the troops at times and that was great to see. He does play and work very hard, which makes up for some physical limitations. He’s had a great shooting stroke all along and now his mental game is settling in and allowing his shots to fall. Glad Coach Smith didn’t take the advice of the fan base and give up on him. I have to admit I’ve been a loyal Brock fan ever since he did a very kind act for my daughter when she was a freshman out there at USU a couple years ago. I’m in his corner.

Yeah, like most games last year, his hustle is there on defense. It seems like Bean's rubbed off on him as it seemed like he's been a bit more physical this year.

I'm still concerned about him being a liability when guarding key players and quick guards, however, I have 0 complaints about his play these 3 games. Well done, Brock.

I hope Brock can keep it up! His stats are way better than the Mountain West Preseason Player of the Year - Derrick Alston's have been thus far.

Alston's statistics:

MPG FG% 3P% FT% REB AST BLK STL TO PTS
32.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 3.0 1.0 1.0 2.0 0.0

Brock's Statistics

MPG FG% 3P% FT% REB AST BLK STL TO PTS
23.0 44.4 45.5 50.0 2.3 1.3 0.0 1.0 0.7 7.3

My son worked as a tutor for the athletes his last two years at US. Brock was one of the students who he tutored, and he also saw the genuine good guy in him - so I've also been pulling for him to find his niche on the team.

He did play better for one game (out of the last 30 or so). Hope it's a trend.

Played much more under control and shooting in rhythm. Also helps that he's not shooting with the chip ball the MW used last year.

He's playing well.

If I had one wish it would be that he doesn't try to go to the rim unless it's wide open. Miller's strength does not lie in driving into a crowd.
