Alabama senior gymnast Diandra Milliner has been named the SEC Specialist of the Week, the conference released in a statement Wednesday, for her 9.95 on the floor exercise in Alabama’s 197.075-196.375.
Milliner, from Wichita, Kan., tied Alabama all-arounder Kim Jacob for the best score on floor and best score of an event for the meet.
“Diandra’s floor routine against UCLA was amazing,” Alabama gymnastics coach Sarah Patterson said. “It’s the best one she’s done in competition to this point. To have her there to anchor what is becoming one of the nation’s best floor lineups is certainly a big advantage for us.”
