Former Kentucky wing Darius Miller is going to run out of room in his trophy case at some point.

There have been worse problems to have.

Miller, a Maysville, Kentucky, native who has already won a high school state title and a national championship at Kentucky, won his third consecutive easyCredit BBL championship on Sunday with Brose Bamberg. Brose Bamberg swept EWE Baskets Oldenburg to claim their ninth title in the easyCredit BBL, the highest-level league in Germany.

One year after earning Finals MVP honors, Miller averaged 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in the 2017 best-of-five championship series. He knocked down 58.8 percent (10-17) of his outside shots.

Brose Bamberg cruised to a 96-60 victory in game one of the series, with Miller posting 14 points, two boards and four assists. In game two, an 88-76 victory, the closest of the three games played, Miller scored a dozen points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out a pair of assists. In the championship-clinching 76-58 win, Miller had 10 points, three rebounds and three assists.

Miller ranks 34th all-time on Kentucky’s career scoring list. He averaged 8.2 points per game during his four-year career, shot 37.9 percent from 3-point range and knocked down 175 triples, the 10th most in program history. His 152 games played in a Kentucky uniform are the most in program history.
