Miles named Big South Scholar-Athlete of the Year

Presbyterian College guard Janie Miles was named Big South Scholar-Athlete of the Year Tuesday, part of the season-ending women’s basketball awards announced leading up to this week’s Big South Tournament.

Miles, a junior on the PC roster, had her first double-double this year when she posted 15 points and 11 rebounds at East Carolina in November. In 29 appearances this year, Miles is shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 38.8 percent from 3-point range, and 70 percent from the foul line. A biology major, Miles was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team for District IV on Feb. 9.

Teammate Cortney Storey was also named to the All-Big South Second Team. Storey averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 assists and 2.1 steals this season for PC, and is first in the conference in assists (127), tied for first in average minutes (36.6), second in free-throw percentage (83.2) and third in both steals and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.4). Storey was named Big South Player of the Week three times this season, including Monday.

And former Blue Hose head coach Ronny Fisher was named Big South Coach of the Year after leading Campbell to a 21-8 overall record and 13-5 mark in the Big South, good enough for the No. 2 seed in this week’s tournament.
