Reggie Miller makes his Final Four picks, professes love for Cade Cunningham, more


March Madness is back and Reggie Miller is back to promote the “Official Breakfast of March Madness” with Wendy’s breakfast menu.

Reggie Miller is teaming up with Wendy’s as the star of a series of national television commercials promoting the brand’s role as the “Official Breakfast of March Madness.” Wendy’s will be offering fans a free Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit* – no purchase necessary – beginning Thursday, March 18 – Saturday, March 20.

“It’s been a great two-year relationship with Wendy’s,” Miller said in a phone interview. “We were supposed to do the bubble spot last year for March Madness, but as you know, the world shut down, but Wendy’s found a way to use those spots when I was in my bubble experience in Orlando for the NBA Playoffs. So we decided to kind of keep the ball rolling and knowing that the NCAA Tournament was coming back in a very unique situation, having all the games being played in Indiana, we decided to bubble in Indiana.”

The NCAA Tournament is playing all of its games in the state of Indiana due to the ongoing concerns with COVID-19.

“For them to find a way to pull it off by creating their own bubble environment in Indiana to bring all the teams to play in at historic universities in Indiana kudos to everyone involved,” Miller said. “It’s very unique. It’s going to have its set of challenges, but I think you will see because of the limited fans being brought in, some unbelievable play as well as some possibly unbelievable upsets. Anything is possible this year.”

With the brackets set after Selection Sunday and bragging rights on the line for your March Madness pool, take the advice from the Pro Basketball Hall of Famer and former UCLA Bruins standout when it comes to filling yours out. Miller has three No. 1 seeds making the Final Four.

“I have Gonzaga representing the West,” Miller said. “I have Michigan representing the East, Oklahoma State representing the Midwest and Baylor representing the South. I have Baylor beating Oklahoma State and I have Gonzaga beating Michigan. Finally, I have Mark Few and Gonzaga cutting down the nets as national champions.”

A big part of Miller picking Oklahoma State to reach the Final Four is the play of freshman Cade Cunningham, the projected No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

“He is 6-foot-8, can control the flow of the game, shoots the ball with incredible range and accuracy. I just, love everything about Cade Cunningham. In this tournament and in years past, you’ve got to have great guard play because they control the tempo and pace. As a freshman for him to be able to control pace and tempo and score. … I just love Cade Cunningham’s game.”

You can see Miller in Wendy’s commercials promoting Wendy’s breakfast menu as the Official Breakfast of March Madness as the Tournament plays out the next few weeks. Be sure to fill out your March Madness bracket and using Miller’s advice for the Final Four or if you’ll go against the grain. One way or the other, having a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit from Wendy’s is something all basketball fans can agree is a great way to start the day.
