Miller boys compete, win at Raleigh tournament

The Miller School’s boys basketball team continued its challenging, wild schedule with a trip south to Raleigh, North Carolina for the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational where the Mavericks face a field of loaded teams from across the nation.

On day one Wednesday, a slow first quarter cost the Mavericks against Wesleyan Christian Academy out of High Point, N.C. in a 69-54 loss, but the Mavericks’ fortunes changed Thursday.

Miller rolled 87-63 Thursday against Body of Christ Christian Academy from Raleigh. Andrew White and Travis Hester led the way offensively with White going for 22 while Hester poured in 18. White completed a double double with 11 rebounds and he also came up with four steals.

Chase Cannon and Janeil Jenkins completed the balanced offensive effort with 16 and 15 points respectively. Jenkins and Devon Anderson each had four assists.

Miller has its work cut out for it against St. Mark’s out of Southborough, Massachusetts tomorrow, led by Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-foot, 220-pound center who is a five-star recruit that committed to Arizona who had offers from Kansas and North Carolina. He’s joined by four-star Michigan commit and 6-foot-5 shooting guard Nick Stauskas.
