One night later, Miller went for 18 points and the Bobcats moved to 1-2 overall with a narrow win.
“They played like I knew they could,” said head coach David Stephenson. “All out, fundamental, trying to make the right things happen at the right time. Incredible hustle by this young team. We have a ton of talent and speed. They are young, but they are trying to figure out how to work together best within the system. It’s starting to come, though, slowly but surely.”
The Bobcats will step up in classification with a game at Lee University on Tuesday before returning home of Thursday to host Crown College at the Rossville Athletic Center.
