After two poor performances, UK senior Darius Miller bounced back in the SEC tourney title game thanks to the unselfishness of teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

NEW ORLEANS, La. - One of the positives to come from Kentucky's loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament championship game was that senior Darius Miller regained his confidence following a pair of poor performances to start the tourney.

Miller, who was last year's SEC tournament MVP, led Kentucky with 16 points against the Commodores Sunday. The Cats' senior went 0-5 from the field and was held scoreless through UK's first two games of the tourney.

Miller had been coming off the bench most of the season. Freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist noticed his teammate was struggling and went to the UK coaching staff lobbying for Miller to start in his place, hoping it'd help Miller break out of his two-game slump.

Miller credited Kidd-Gilchrist's move with helping him turn his game around.
