South Dakota State’s Mike Daum, Macy Miller are Summit League Players of Week
When it's all said and done, Mike Daum and Macy Miller will be remembered as two of the best to ever wear a South Dakota State basketball uniform. But for these two juniors, there's still plenty left to accomplish on the floor.
Daum and Miller are the Players of the Week in the Summit League.
For Daum, it's the fourth honor in the last five weeks. Last week, he averaged a double-double (31 points/10 rebounds) and shot 56 percent from the floor in wins over Oral Roberts and Denver.
Against the Golden Eagles, the Kimball, Nebraska native scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Two days later, Daum tallied 34 points on 10-of-14 shooting with eight boards against Denver. It marked the seventh time this season Daum has topped the 30-point mark in a game.
For Miller it's a sweep of the Summit League and College Sports Madness Summit League Mid-Major Player of the Week Awards this week.
The Mitchell native averaged 22 points, seven rebounds, and four assists while shooting 50 percent from the field in wins over Denver and Oral Roberts last week.
Miller scored a game-high 18 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished three assists against the Pioneers. Against the Golden Eagles, she scored a season-and-game high 26 points on 11-of-18 shooting from the field. She also added seven rebounds and four assists.
