Moses Miller of Anchorage has shot the 3-pointer well this season and has enjoyed some high scoring games this season in the NWAC.

But the Southwestern Oregon freshman had never had the kind of success he did against Clackamas.

Miller buried 12-of-18 field goals, including 8-of-13 triples, en route to a season-high 36-point effort in a 101-94 loss in Portland, Oregon.

His previous high games were 23, 24 and 25 points, and his 17.5 season scoring average is tops among Alaska men in the NWAC.

He makes nearly three 3-pointers a game and hit six 3s against Walla Walla right before the holiday break, so this performance didn’t come out of nowhere.

Miller ranks fourth in the NWAC in 3-point percentage [.478] on 33-of-69 shooting.

The 6-foot-2 guard isn’t just a shooter. He’s also a playmaker and owns a 13-assist game earlier this year. He’s also had games with five, six and seven assists.
