Before Saturday's game, Nicole Miller said she had a feeling she was going to have a big night on the town. She probably did, too, after watching her son — Kentucky sophomore Darius Miller — played perhaps his best game of the season to help UK down Wake Forest 90-60 in the NCAA East Region second round. Miller had a career-high 20 points and nine rebounds — only one his career high — and was the catalyst early that helped propel UK to a second straight impressive NCAA win.
