“It’s a show”: Meet Kiyomi McMiller, a top 2024 recruit with lofty goals (Philadelphia Inquirer, 2/6/2023)

“It’s a show, that’s how I take basketball as, a show, and people are coming to watch you,” said the Life Center Academy point guard. “If you go to watch a movie, you don’t want the movie to be boring. You want to be entertained, so that’s how I take basketball. It’s a show; people are coming to watch to be entertained.” . . .

While she might be in the Philly area now, her basketball style is strongly influenced by the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area, since it’s where she grew up playing and where her parents coached.

“Kiyomi is a reactionary player, so she sees things, she processes it, but she sees and processes a lot faster than most players,” Mike McMiller said. “She’s [also] putting on a show, but the show is not to showboat, like people like to say. Everybody has a different style; that’s just her style of play … a DMV style of play.”
