Saints sign another from the Buckeye State

Moberly, Mo.

Central Christian College of the Bible head men's basketball coach Jack Defreitas on Monday announced the signing of Micah Miller for the 2017-18 season. Miller is the second member of the Saints' 2017 class and also the second from the state of Ohio, joining Jacob Case of McComb.

Miller, a 6-3 shooting guard from Upper Sandusky, Ohio, recently completed his senior season for the Marion Hawks, an independent homeschool club. The four-year letterman and two-year starter for the Hawks averaged 17.3 points and four rebounds per game as a senior.

The Hawks finished 14-19 this past season and 25-9 with a second place finish at the Independent Christian Schools of Ohio (ICSO) state tournament in 2015-16. Miller was the ICSO three-point champion for 2016-17 and scored 1,130 points in his high school career.

"Micah is another really good fit for our institution and our basketball program," Defreitas said. "He has the length to shoot over defenders and he shoots it well from the outside, which is an area we really want to improve this offseason. Micah brings a lot to the table but most important is his high character, and I'm excited to have him joining us."

While at CCCB, Miller plans to pursue a Bachelor of Religious Studies and a dual enrollment degree in Computer Information Technology from Moberly Area Community College.
