UK fan gets opportunity to meet Tide’s Brandon Miller
By WVUA-23 Sports Reporter Kalen Brooks
NASHVILLE – Alabama Crimson Tide fans showed out in Droves this weekend for the 2023 SEC Basketball Tournament.
Approximately 130 members of Alabama’s student fan section “Crimson Chaos” made the trip to Bridgestone Arena to cheer on the Tide.
Tammy Pickett likely traveled farther than many of the Tide fans. She’s a Kentucky Wildcats fan from Russell Springs, Kentucky but she had a special shirt made up to support Alabama freshman Brandon Miller.
She said she likes his game and he’s a great player.
“I’m just a fan of Brandon Miller and I want to support him,” Pickett said. “He’s just really good. He’s aggressive and good”.
Following Alabama’s semifinal win over Missouri on Saturday, Pickett had the opportunity to meet her favorite Alabama player. Miller returned to the court to pose for a photo.
