Mitchell's Miller ending historic run

Posted: Updated:

    Macy Miller grew up with a basketball.  The youngest of four in a basketball family, and the last of a generation, of great Miller players from Mitchell.

  "I'm mentally strong because of all of that, I had two older brothers pushing me.  That was a good thing." says Miller.

 "She won't shoot three's at practice, or three's in the game, and then her family shows up and starts getting on her, and sometimes that family peer pressure is good." says head coach Wes Morgan. 

  When she shoots, it usually goes in.  Macy leads the state with 30 points a game and she set a Class AA record with 49-points in a win at spearfish earlier this season, and is on the verge of becoming Mitchell High School's all-time leading scorer.

 "You don't see this happen.  I tell people they need to come out and watch, they're seeing something special." says Morgan.

 "Playing with Macy, when she gets in a rythym, she's hard to stop." says junior Taylor Volesky.

 "I just do the best I can each night out, and what happens, happens." says Miller. 

  For her, the main goal, is to win another state title.  She was on a title team as a sophmore, but came up short last year.

 "It hurt finishing second last year, but this year our goal was to be the number one team going in, and so far we've done that, and our goal is to win the state title." says Miller. 

  Miller committed to play her college basketball at South Dakota State as a sophmore, where she should make an immediate impact next year.

 "You're going see her go to another level in college." says Morgan.

"If I would have waited, maybe i could have gone to a bigger place.  But I'm happy with my choice of going to SDSU." says Miller.
