On Saturday, the Mountaineers needed a big game from Miles to finish out the regular season strong. Miles, the SCAC’s leading scorer, scored 17 points and had six rebounds, two steals and two assists. Elisa Peralta scored 13 points. Thomas came off the bench for 10 points.


Statistically, Texas Lutheran played the Mountaineers to a standstill, but it was the combination of the grit of Thomas and Miles. Miles’ only 3-pointer of the night helped the Mountaineers separate from the Bulldogs with 2:20 left in the game, 72-66.
