Patrick Miller completed a four-year career as a member of the Tennessee State basketball team by graduating in May. As an Economics and Finance major, he walked across the stage with a GPA of 3.5. Miller was one of the most accomplished point guards in school history, finishing sixth all-time in points with 1,900. In 2013, Miller set modern-era records for both assists (195) and minutes (1,186). As a senior, the Chicago native led the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring and was named to the All-OVC Team at season’s end.
