“I don’t think the perimeter people they had were quick enough to guard her off of the dribble,” he continued.

Millea’s varsity high came in the second game of the season, when she scored 27 points against Mohawk on Dec. 7. On the season, Millea is the second-leading scorer on the team, averaging 11.3 points per game. She leads the team in steals and is second in assists.

“We’re blessed in that she has a natural awareness about the game,” Niles said. “A lot of times it takes years to develop that kind of on-court intelligence.”

Millea’s teammates said they think highly of her as well.

“She’s funny and goofy and always happy,” Cring said. “She always has a smile on her face. She’s another one that you can always find practicing. If you don’t know where she is, she is probably at the Clark (Sports Center) shooting baskets.”

Senior Sumer Murdock, who also made the all-tournament team, added, “She’s a leader on this team. She pushes people to get better.”
