Hysier Miller, Temple’s star guard, has had an outstanding start. Averaging 20.8 points per game and with 4.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game to back him up, Hysier’s scoring ability remains a significant threat on the court.

Flanigan and Miller will engage in an epic battle of offensive and defensive acumen when they square off on the court, pitting one against the other with Flanigan using her disruptive plays to combat Miller’s scoring and playmaking abilities. This face-off could decide the outcome and flow of the game itself.
