Can Tom Hackett? Re-Creating Andre Miller’s ’98 Triple-Double
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In the 1998 NCAA Tournament, University of Utah great Andre Miller recorded just the fourth triple-double in the tournament’s history with 18 points, 14 rebounds and 13 assists.
KSL Sports’ Tom Hackett decided to see if he was capable of pulling off the same shots that Miller made in the Utes’ win over Arizona in the Elite Eight.
Miller’s efforts in the big win over Arizona helped Utah continue its magical run all the way to the 1998 NCAA Championship game, where they fell to Kentucky.

In celebration of the anniversary of Miller’s big game, Hackett was out to recreate some of the greatness himself.
Granted, the level of difficulty was definitely greater in Miller’s case, Hackett still exerted himself in his attempt to prove he could do it as well.
While Miller was one of the Utah basketball program’s all-time greats, Hackett was no slouch either, earning All-American honors three times and the Ray Guy award as the nation’s top punter twice.
Hackett is out to prove he can hack it as he works his way through the history books of great Beehive State moments. Stay tuned for more segments of “Can Tom Hackett?”
