It seems like yesterday Jazmine Miller was a freshman guard with the Vanden High girls basketball team, averaging 7.5 points per game in a dazzling debut season.

Eight years and thousands of trips up and down the court later, Miller’s collegiate career is over.

It came to an end with Chico State’s 89-80 loss to Cal Poly Pomona in the second round of the West Coast Regionals at Pomona. Miller had 13 points, four rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist for the Wildcats (19-10), who were outscored 52-36 in the second half.

Chico State opened the regional by thumping Cal State Dominguez Hills 90-70, overcoming a 41-32 halftime deficit to avenge a loss in the California Collegiate Athletic Association tournament. Miller helped the cause with 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

Miller, a four-year player for CSU and an all-CCAA first team selection this season, was one of two players to start all 29 games for the Wildcats. She led the team with an average of 13. 2 points per game and 50 3-pointers, finishing second with 69 assists, 32 steals and an 82.6 free throw percentage.

San Diego State’s season ended with a 53-48 loss to Nevada in the Mountain West Conference tournament after opening with a 63-56 win over Air Force. Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) had 10 points, five rebounds and two assists in the first game, nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in the second.

Hunter was one of two players for the Aztecs (13-17) to play in all 30 games and made 28 starts, averaging 9.2 points and a team-high 6.9 rebounds per game, tying for the team high with 14 blocks. She also led the team with 37 steals and had 51 assists.

Erimma Amarikwa (Vanden) played in seven games, averaging 5.3 points and 2.7 rebounds for SDSU.

Wrestling

Former Armijo standout Marques Gales of Trinity was one of three coaches voted to share the National Wrestling Coaches Association’s National Rookie Coach of the Year award. The Bantams took two wrestlers to the NCAA Division III tournament for the first time in 13 years with junior heavyweight Kyle McGuire going 1-2 and senior 197-pounder Petros Hologitas 0-2.

Baseball

There’s nothing like giving up 16 runs – and winning by eight. Nick Spini (Armijo, Solano) went 3 for 6, including a two-run homer to left in a six-run fourth inning, with three RBIs as East Central (13-10) outpaced St. Gregory’s 24-16.

Spini also went 3 for 5 in an 8-3 win over Abilene Christian as the Tigers went 3-0 for the week with the former Indian/Falcon batting .438 (7 for 16).

Tyler Stover (Vacaville) didn’t start, but had two productive appearances for Kansas State (11-7). In a 24-3 thumping of Northern Colorado, Stover doubled and was hit by a pitch, driving in a run and scoring another. He later was hit by a pitch and scored a run in an 11-0 win over the Bears.

By going 3-0 with a 1.67 earned run average and 33 strikeouts, Landrith (5-4) was named American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.

Landrith allowed seven hits and three runs (two earned) with 10 strikeouts and a walk in a 4-3 win over Penn State. She then tossed a five-hitter with nine strikeouts and a walk in a 4-1 bouncing of Buffalo. Landrith closed her week with by allowing six hits with a career-high 14 strikeouts and no walks in an 8-2 dumping of Quinnipiac.

Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) returned to action after missing most of last week with a minor injury and did it with a flair, going 4 for 6 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored in a 14-13 loss to Stanford.
