Quincy Miller Returns for Sophomore Season

Quincy Miller Returns for Sophomore Season

The projected first round pick is not done in Waco yet. Quincy Miller elects to stay for his Sophomore season at Baylor.

The NBA is going to have to wait another year on Quincy Miller, and Baylor is going to have to wait another year to get its first ‘one-and-done" recruit. After a Big 12 Freshman of the year campaign, Quincy Miller announced Tuesday night that he would be coming back to Baylor for his Sophomore year.

The 5-star recruit from Westchester Academy (High Point, NC) averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game for the Bears. He shared Freshman of the Year honors with LeBryan Nash of Oklahoma State from the Big 12 coaches. Miller became the first Baylor player to earn freshman of the year honors since 1995, when Brian Skinner won in the now extinct Southwest Conference.

Miller made his announcement at Baylor Ballpark, as the 8th ranked Baylor Bears hosted University of Louisiana-Monroe. With Miller's return, the Bears should begin next season highly ranked, after a very successful year ended in the Elite Eight.
