Miller chooses USI to continue hoops career
EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana women's basketball team announced that 5'10" freshman forward Taylor Miller (Pendleton Heights, Indiana) has signed a national letter of intent to play for Head Coach Rick Stein's Screaming Eagles in 2008-09.
Miller is currently a senior at Pendleton Heights High School where she was a two-time All-Hoosier Heritage Conference and All-Madison County performer.
In 2007-08, Miller averaged 9.5 points and 5.4 rebounds per game to help lead Pendleton Heights to the finals of the IHSAA Class 4A Anderson Sectional Tournament.
For her career, Miller averaged 10.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.8 steals per game. She shot 46.2 percent from the field, 34.6 percent from behind the arc, and helped Pendleton Heights to Hoosier Heritage Conference championships in 2004-05 and 2007-08. She also helped Pendleton Heights to Madison County titles in 2004-05 and 2005-06.
Miller finished her career at Pendleton Heights ranked third all-time in free throw percentage and three pointers sixth all-time in career steals, eighth all-time in career scoring, and 10th all-time in career assists.
"Taylor is an aggressive, physical player that can help our team in many different ways," Stein said. "She can knock down the three as well as go down in the paint and post up. Taylor ranks in the top 10 in five different offensive and defensive statistical categories at Pendleton, which shows her ability to excel at both ends of the court."
Miller joins 5'4" freshman guard Rinesha Soaper (Henderson, Kentucky) and 6'0" junior guard/forward Abby Williams (St. Joseph, Illinois) on USI's list of incoming players for the 2008-09 season.
