South Pointes Manzey Miller and Xavier Silk Williams recently signed to play basketball in college.
Miller, the son of Jerome and Connie Miller is headed to Brevard College. He averaged 13 points, 4 ssists and 2 steals per game this season.
Manzey Miller had an excellent year for our team, Stallions coach Melvin Watson said. Manzey made a big sacrifice of his game to fit into what we were building as a team last year, he bought into the team first mentally to make us a better team.
He was a guy that could average 20 or more points, but he bought into trusting his teammates and their ability. His ability to lead and control things when it got hectic will be missed.
Williams, son of Evelyn Mann, signed with Voorhees College. He averaged 7 points, 7 assists, 3 steals and 4 rebounds
Xavier had a great year for us this year. He is the ultimate team guy that put playing for his teammates before himself. He was a huge factor as of why we were able to win the region, and was 14-4 in the second half of the season. His work ethic and leadership skills will be missed.
