"Coach (Fran) McCaffery is a terrific coach," Miller said. "He was at Siena when I was at Ohio State. They upset is in the first round (of the 2009 NCAA Tournament) in Dayton. He had a terrific team there. "I'm obviously very familiar with his background. I think he's got momentum. He's got a great style about him. They play up-tempo. They switch. They can mix their defenses. Typically, they've always been a fast running team.
"As I look at them very briefly as we start here to get ready to play them, some of their personnel I know and some of the personnel I don't. The thing I know is that offensively, they're a very difficult cover. They play a great tempo, their efficiency is good.
"When you watch them on tape, I don't know of they're necessarily that typical physical, Big Ten, beat-you-up type of a team.
"And obviously, I'm very familiar with playing in Carver-Hawkeye (Arena) and how hard that is. We have our work cut out for us. He's a terrific coach and I know they have a lot of momentum moving forward, not only as he moves into this postseason but into next year."
