UPDATED: Miller scred 45 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to lead the Panthers on Saturday night in Prep League action. Miller moves to No. 4 with 2,928 career points. She’s on pace to at least finish second all-time, but Miller is still a threat to Cheryl Miller’s all-time record. We’ll keep you posted throughout the season. Folks, no matter how you want to look at it, we are witnessing history.
Pasadena Poly’s Michelle Miller, the reigning two-time Star-News Player of the Year, needs just 14 points to pass Lisa Leslie to become the No. 4 all-time scoring leader in the CIF-Southern Section. Miller is expected to pass Leslie when the Panthers visit Prep League foe Webb at 5:30 tonight.
Leslie, a four-time WNBA champion and Olympic gold medalist out of Inglewood’s Morningside High, currently is fourth with 2,896 points.
Poly’s Miller, who is averaging 32 points per game, has 2,883 points. Miller would need to average 35.5 points over 18 games to break Cheryl Miller’s long-standing record of 3,446 career points scored at Riverside Poly.
Check back later to see if Miller moves up on the list.
