SDSU’s All-Time Great Duo

Sports

SDSU seniors Macy Miller and Madi Guebert have each rewrote portions of the program’s record books.  

As a basketball player, Macy Miller can best be described as a swiss army knife.  The Mitchell native possesses a versatile skillset, allowing her to attack opponents in a variety of ways, which helped her become the program’s all-time leading scorer.

“She really isn’t just a one threat person. If you take away her outside shot, she’s going to drive to the basket. If you take away her drive, she’s going to shoot a three. She has a counter for pretty much everything that anyone would ever try to take away from her,” SDSU Senior Madi Guebert said. 

Madi Guebert is a sharpshooter.  With her quick release and deadly accuracy, the Apple Valley, Minnesota product broke the Jacks’ career three-point record.

“We say she doesn’t look athletic, but she’s so athletic. Very quick on her feet on defense and you know, what she’s known for, her three-point shot. She’s a sniper,” SDSU Senior Macy Miller said. 

The senior standouts have provided Aaron Johnston with a formidable duo, combining for 75 wins in their three full seasons together.

“The fact that those two have played together for so long is just fairly remarkable to think you could have two talents like that on the same team, at the same time,” SDSU Head Coach Aaron Johnston said.

Guebert and Miller have spent four years together in Brookings, including three on the court, allowing their complimentary games and chemistry to evolve.

“We just know each other’s tendencies and have grown really comfortable. It’s almost like second nature at this point,” Guebert said. 

“I know if I get a rebound and I’m not a good look at the basket, I can look out at the three and find Madi, spotted up and ready to shoot,” Miller said. 

As the two all-time Jackrabbit greats close their respective college careers, they’re leaving behind a legacy bigger than basketball.

“Both are fantastic people. You just couldn’t ask for two better seniors with both Maddie and Macy,” Johnston said.

Guebert is 21 points away from moving into fourth place on SDSU’s all-time scoring list, while Miller is 79 points shy of becoming the Summit League’s all-time leading scorer.  The Jackrabbits close the regular season Saturday against Western Illinois.
