Likewise, Miller picked up his play in December, combining for 43 points against Long Beach State and Boise State to earn West Coast Conference Player of the Week honors on December 26th. Miller earned his first two 20-point games of his career while averaging 14.0 points and 3.6 rebounds in December. He contributed an additional 19 assists, six steals, and two blocks and shot 47 percent (24-for-51) from long range throughout the month.
