Golden's Miller added to 2009-10 recruiting class
ALAMOSA, Colo.— Adams State College men’s basketball coach Mark Murdock announced this week that he has added 2009 Golden High School graduate Alex Miller to the Grizzlies’ 2009-10 recruiting class.
Miller, a 6-foot-2, 193-pound guard averaged 17 points, eight assists and seven rebounds per game last season and earned first team all-state and Jeffco 4A League MVP honors as a senior with the John Anderson coached Demons. Leading the 2008-09 team to an 18-7 overall record, a league championship and a Sweet 16 appearance as the team captain, Miller was also selected to the all-state game.
As a junior, Miller averaged 12 points, five assists and five rebounds per game earning first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state honors while being named as the team’s most outstanding player. A 3-year varsity starter had also been tabbed as an honorable mention all-conference pick as a sophomore in 2007.
Miller also played AAU basketball for the Colorado Chaos Traveling Team in 2007-08 and helped the team to win three tournaments while finishing the summer ranked 22nd in the country.
We are fortunate to have a player of Alex's ability. He is a guard that scores, passes and rebounds well and is a gritty, tough defender. His high school success and his high level of play for Dave Matthews and the Colorado Chaos has prepared him to succeed at our level,” Murdock said.
Miller, the son of Lee “Dutch” and Nancy Miller, plans to major in social studies or physical education at ASC and hopes to go on to teach and coach high school basketball.
