Brandon Miller was in the headlines all of last week, for wildly different reasons.

First, the Alabama star freshman was mentioned in court as having allegedly delivered a gun to former Alabama player Darius Miles, who then gave the gun to Michael Davis, who allegedly murdered Jamea Harris in a shooting in Tuscaloosa on Jan. 15.

Then, Miller went out and dropped 41 points in an overtime win at South Carolina.

On Saturday, Miller again led Alabama to a win, this time over Arkansas, but he was roundly criticized for his pregame celebration which featured a Crimson Tide teammate patting him down.

All in all, Miller scored 65 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in 2 wins last week. Yet, when the SEC announced weekly awards on Monday, Miller didn’t win either the SEC Player of the Week or the SEC Freshman of the Week awards. Instead, those went to Kentucky big man Oscar Tshiebwe and Arkansas freshman Nick Smith Jr., respectively.

Fans and media members took to Twitter to react to Miller not being honored for his big performances on the court:

Clearly, theories are flying on social media after this perceived snub.

What this means moving forward

Alabama is 1 win away (or 1 Texas A&M loss away) from locking up the No. 1 seed in the SEC tournament. Miller has been a big part of that.

His on-the-court performance has been impeccable. The situation he finds himself in off the court, though, has not been a good look in any regard.

There’s no specific “character” or “morality” clause in how the SEC selects its weekly awards. In fact, the league has plenty of latitude to make whatever decision it sees fit.

The SEC may have indeed decided that Miller’s off-the-court headlines outweighed his dominant performances on the floor. That’s the league’s right.

Alabama is still trending toward a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Tide will be tough to beat in the SEC basketball tournament or in March Madness. Just don’t expect Miller to rack up many more awards from the SEC this year.
