Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Stu's Hunt Down: Former Rochester Mayo standouts Kelly and Coco Miller

Posted by: Michael Rand under Minnesota state tournaments Updated: August 22, 2013 - 3:45 PM

Each week, commenter RandBallsStu (branding!) tracks down a former Minnesota sports figure about whom you might have forgotten. This week, it's a bonus: twins! Stu?

-------------

The Hunt Down

 
Names: Kelly and Coco Miller
 
Claim to Fame, Minnesota: after an outpouring of demand for more Rochester-based Hunt Downs following last week’s post on Steve DeBus, the HD gladly takes up the task of profiling Kelly and Coco Miller.  The Millers, identical twins born four minutes apart, played basketball for Rochester Mayo.  They led the Spartans to state titles in 1995 and 1997, sharing Minnesota Miss Basketball honors in their undefeated ’97 season.
 
Claim to Fame, Everywhere Else: in a move designed to upset Sid, the Millers bypassed the University of Minnesota and attended Georgia instead, where they shared another prestigious honor, the James E. Sullivan Award for the nation’s best amateur athlete, in 1999.  They were finally separated by the 2001 WNBA draft, when Kelly was taken second overall by Charlotte and Coco was selected by Washington with the ninth pick.  For a change of pace, they were named the league’s Most Improved Player in different years (Coco 2002, Kelly two years later).  They were briefly reunited in 2010, when both played for the Atlanta Dream.
 
Where They Are Now: both live in the Phoenix area, where Coco teaches at Anthem Prep, and, as you may guess by the names, both are involved in Kelly and Coco’s Sports Performance Training business and the Team Miller basketball program.
 
Are They On Twitter: here’s Coco, allegedly.  
 
Have They Been in a Twitter Feud with Patrick Reusse: no. 
 

Glorious Randomness: Team Miller is part of the Arizona Eagles youth basketball organization.  As a quick spin around the website will let you know, other coaches there include Greg Ostertag’s son, former Northwestern star Kevin Coble, and AMP (redacted) LEE!  #vikimgs
