During Kentucky’s run to the 2012 NCAA men’s basketball championship, forward Darius Miller was often described in coverage of the Wildcats as “laidback” and a “quiet leader.” In person, the 6-foot-8, 235-pound Miller comes across as a serious, all-business kind of guy. He also gives the first impression of being a bit older than his 22 years of age.
