July 29, 2011
USC assistant men's basketball coach Tony Miller and five others will be inducted into the Marquette M Club Hall of Fame on Aug. 20 in Milwaukee, Wisc. where they will join 72 other honorees already enshired in the Al McGuire Center's Walk of Champions.
"The things that I did at Marquette will be remembered from here on out," said Miller. "It is something that my family and I will cherish for the rest of my life. I had a great time there. I am very thankful for them remembering what I did on the court."
Miller had a standout four seasons at Marquette (1992-95), starting all 123 games and finishing with 956 assists which are still the school's career record and rank seventh all-time in NCAA annuls.
Miller averaged 8.3 points and 7.8 assists in his career and led Marquette to two NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 1994 Sweet 16 with his coast-to-coast drives dismantling Kentucky's full-court press and leading to the victory. Marquette was also the 1995 NIT runner-up and his teams posted an 81-42 record in his four-year career. Miller is one of only two players in NCAA history to have accumulated 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 900 assists.
Following his distinquished career at Marquette, Miller went on to play 12 years in Europe, playing for teams in Holland, Belgium, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. Miller was a Dutch League All-Star in 1998 and 2000 and helped lead his Den Helder team to the 1998 Dutch League title. That season he averaged 14.2 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.6 steals, while making 49.6 percent of his shots.
Miller joined the USC staff for the 2009-10 season as the team's strength and conditioning manager and was promoted to assistant coach on March 26, 2010.
