After a Silver Grove turnover on the ensuing possession, junior forward Kevin Reinhardt hit a layup for a 51-44 lead with two minutes left in the third. Silver Grove drew no closer the rest of the game. Miller scored six points and connected on four of six free throws in the fourth quarter, and Reinhardt and senior forward Jordan Futscher each added five as the Camels refused to let the Big Trains back into the game.

He finished with a game-high 34. ”He’s a good player,” Sigmon said. ”We knew he was going to get his points. We just wanted to key on the rest of the team and make sure they didn’t go on any runs.”
