GBK: Miller Leading Mitchell Into The Playoffs

GBK: Miller Leading Mitchell Into The Playoffs

It's no secret that Macy Miller is a force to be reckoned with in girls basketball.  Now, she hopes to carry her team to a third straight finals appearance.

Coming into this season, no player had more hype that Macy Miller.  She answered by averaging 30 points, 5 steals, 7 rebounds, and just under 4 assists per game, while leading the Kernels to a 19-1 record.

"It's pretty awesome.  Coach Morgan tells me I'm the leader, so I need to come out strong every game and my team will follow.  Our team has bonded so well.  We have played together for so many years that it just comes so natural out there," Mitchell Senior Macy Miller said.

Miller was always Robin, while Kerri Young played Batman, until this season.  Now, Miller is just nine points away from breaking the Mitchell girl's scoring record that Young set last season.  Although the two miss playing together this season, they are excited to share the floor next year at SDSU.

"Being away from her this year has been different.  I'm really excited to get to play with her next year again," SDSU Freshman Kerri Young said.

"It will be really special. We played in the finals two years in a row together and now at SDSU in that atmosphere with Kerri.  She is a great teammate and I am excited to get there," Miller said.

Miller verbally committed with the Jackrabbits almost as soon as she got to high school.  Over the years, she has proven that she could play anywhere in the country.

"I wanted to stay close to home because I want my family to come watch me and if I want to make a quick trip home, it's not that far.  I really like SDSU and their program," Miller said.

"I think she is the kind of player that, yes, when she is done could play at a lot of places.  The fact that she is coming here is not so much of a coo as it is typical for what we do.  It is also a compliment to Macy about how good she is now and how good she is going to be," SDSU Women's Head Coach Aaron Johnston said.

Miller has helped lead the Kernels to back to back title games, winning her sophomore year and falling short as a junior.  Now, as a senior she wants to go out on top.

"It would be awesome. We know what second feels like and we know what first feels like. I want to get back to the state championship game and win it again," Miller said.

Miller and the Kernels begin District play next Monday at the Corn Palace.
