Miller had a hand in both game-winning goals last week as the No. 12 Trojans opened the inaugural season of Pac-12 play with two overtime victories. Friday, she assisted Maeve McMahon’s goal 41 seconds into overtime for an 8-7 victory over Colorado. Sunday, she scored the first goal and the last goal as her free-position goal two minutes into overtime gave the Trojans a 9-8 win over Oregon. Against Colorado, Miller also set a program single-game record with seven caused turnovers. She added two more in the game against Oregon and leads the Trojans with 22 caused turnovers. Miller also led USC (4-3) in caused turnovers last season when she was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Rookie of the Year before the Trojans left for the Pac-12. A veteran of the United States team that won the silver medal at the Under-19 World Cup in 2015, Miller leads USC in scoring with 16 goals and four assists.
