After signing to play at Aiken Technical College, former Evans High School hoops standout Glen Miller had a respectable freshman campaign in 2006-07.
Miller was one of the head coach Bruce Capers' key shooters off the bench and seemed to play better as the season went on. He averaged 5 points per game, but poured in 24 points in a key game against Brunswick Community College late in the season. Also, he was among the best three-point shooters in the country with a 50.8 percent mark from beyond the arc.
The 6-3 sophomore had reason to have high expectations this season. After all, ATC piled up 28 wins a year ago and made its first trip to the Junior College National Tournament since becoming a Division I junior college program. Also, in Capers' six seasons at Aiken Tech, 10 players have signed scholarships with four-year schools.
Now, with the graduation of several players, Miller has his chance to shine this season. So far, he is off to a solid start. Aiken Tech is 5-1, and Miller is averaging 10.5 points per game. He has posted two 16-point efforts and continues to shine from long range, shooting at a 48.6 percent clip from 3-point land. He is also shooting 83.3 percent from the free-throw line. If Miller keeps up this type of play, there is no doubt he will get some offers from four-year programs at the end of the season.
If you'd like to catch Miller and his Aiken Tech teammates, take the short drive down the Aiken-Augusta Highway to Aiken Tech's campus on Dec. 8, when they play host to Albany Technical College.
