#FRANCO Miller Jr’s tenure with the Ole Miss Rebels men’s basketball programme has come to an end.
#Miller announced his intention to enter the NCAA’s transfer portal and will have three years of eligibility remaining when he signs to a new programme.
#“To the University of Mississippi. I have greatly enjoyed my time here at Ole Miss. I’d like to thank the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity, my teammates and friends that I have made on and off the court. The support here at Ole Miss was tremendous.
#“I’ll cherish the amount of memories and friendships I made in Oxford,” he said in a message posted to social media. “However, after constant conversations with my family, I feel like now is in my best interest to enter my name into the transfer portal.”
#Miller played sparingly last season as a redshirt freshman and appeared in just 13 games. In those few appearances, he reached double figures in minutes just three times.
#He scored four points in his season debut against Alabama State, but would go scoreless for the remainder of the season.
#Prior to the NCAA’s cancellation of winter and spring sports due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Rebels’ season ended with a 81-63 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs in the first round of the SEC Tournament.
