Despite a near triple-double by guard Aliyah Miller, the Volunteer State Community College Lady Pioneers dropped a 83-72 decision to the Dyersburg State Community College Eagles last Saturday in Pickel Fieldhouse.
Miller’s 30-point, 11-rebound, 7-assist effort went to naught as only one other Vol State player, Kelsey Harriman, finished the game scoring in double figures.
“I thought we came out with a lot of energy, a lot of fire,” said Pioneer head coach Otis Key. “I probably made some decisions that could have been better, and some of my adjustments could have been better.”
“It was an emotional game,” said Key. “We had eight sophomores playing their last home game.”
