Mr. & Ms. Basketball: A Family Tradition

May 4, 2014, 10:39 PM by Cat Clark

Mr. & Ms. Basketball: A Family Tradition
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

For 37 years Hanson and Anderson have been bringing the top senior basketball players in the state of South Dakota together to name Mr. and Ms. Basketball. This year they selected two players, each with fathers that have won the award.

In 1981 Allen Miller was named Mr. Basketball. Two years later Troy Schaefer was given the honor. Today their children, Macy Miller and Steven Schaefer, were given the Rushmore State's biggest basketball honor. So did dad give them any advice?

"No, he's never really said anything other than not to think about it when you're playing," Mitchell Senior Macy Miller said.

"We didn't really talk that much about it," Rapid City Stevens Senior Steven Schaefer said. "He was a co-winner, so I've got to give him a hard time about not winning it outright," he added.

Schaefer was able to claim the title by leading Rapid City Stevens to a 20-5 record while averaging 24 points per game in his senior campaign. Miller spent her final year in Mitchell rewriting every school record and many more statewide. With her 31 points a night she became the second Kernel to win the title Ms. Basketball in two years. Kerri Young won it in 2013.

"I feel really honored and I want to thank them for giving me such a big award. I am truly grateful," Miller said. "It's special to have two Kernel girls win it two years in a row and I'm really excited to play with her next year," she added.

"It was really exciting," Schaefer stated. "Everyone has been asking me when it was and if I had won it. Now it's nice to be able to tell them that I did."

Both of these talented players will still be in South Dakota playing college ball. Schaefer will take his talents across the state to play at Augustana. As for Miller, she will be chasing down records at SDSU.

"I'm excited to be a Jackrabbit," Miller said. "I will have a new coach and a new team that I am excited to play with. It will be a fun season."
"I'm really excited for the future and to see how I will develop as a college player," Schaefer said.
