The Aggies established leader on and off the court, senior Eddie Miller, did not have quite the season he was hoping for.
But despite the injury problems that hampered the beginning of his season, Miller fought back to become one UC Davis’ most effective players.
After missing five of the first seven contests due to a leg injury, Miller finished the season averaging 10.2 points and 4.8 rebounds-per-game.
In the second half of the season Miller consistently showed why he was the Aggies’ leader with big hustle defensive plays and an explosive offensive game.
In the biggest games of the season, Miller always rose to the occasion.
He scored in double digits in seven of the final nine games of the year, including a team-high 17 points in the Aggies’ Big West Tournament game against Long Beach State.
It is no surprise that Miller’s best game of the season resulted in the Aggies’ best win of the season. Miller recorded 17 points and 12 rebounds when the Aggies upset Cal State Fullerton, which was second in the Big West at the time.
