Brandon Miller Adds Another Award to his Resume
After the Alabama Crimson Tide got its revenge over the Texas A&M Aggies in an 82-63 beatdown to clinch the SEC double crown, freshman sensation Brandon Miller was named the tournament MVP.
Sunday, Miller became Alabama's 4th SEC tournament MVP, joining Derrick McKey (1987), Melvin Cheatum (1990), and Jahvon Quinerly (2021).
Over three games, Miller averaged 20.3 points and 11 rebounds a game while shooting 46% from the field. The former Cane Ridge Raven also flashed elite playmaking skills, tying his career-high five assists in the Tide's quarterfinal win over Mississippi State.
The SEC tournament MVP adds to the already long list of hardware that Miller has racked up during his short collegiate career.
Here is a full list of Miller's SEC accolades:
- First team All-SEC
- SEC Regular Season Champion
- SEC Tournament Champion
- SEC Player of the Year
- SEC Freshman of the Year
- SEC All-Freshman team
- SEC All-Tournament team
- SEC Tournament MVP
The 6' 9" forward is also a finalist for multiple national awards, such as the Naismith and Wooden awards.
Miller and the Tide are now set to be the No. 1 overall seed when the selection committee reveals their final bracket at 5 p.m. CST. This will mark the first time in program history that Alabama is a one-seed, let alone the top seed.
No matter the way the season ends, Miller will go down in Alabama history as one of, if not the best, player to ever wear the Crimson & White.
