By winning his third straight Big East Rookie of the Week honors, Miller joined Carmelo Anthony as the only conference frosh ever to win three straight such awards.
Anthony did it during the 2002-3 season when he led Syracuse to a national championship.
Brooklyn’s Lance Stephenson of Cincinnati was named the Preseason Rookie of the Year by the coaches and many expected “Born Ready” to run away with the postseason honors.
But the 6-foot-7 Miller is making a hard push. He leads Big East frosh in scoring (12.5 ppg) and is second in rebounding (6.6).
