Junior Zach Miller has been recognized for his academic and athletic achievements during the 2013-14 season by being named to the Capital One Academic All-American Second Team.

College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) honors student-athletes from the NAIA as well as NCAA Division I, II and III who have earned at least a 3.3 GPA in the classroom. This year, ten total athletes have been recognized by CoSIDA with five being named to the First Team and five being named to the Second Team.

Miller, a double major in Economics and Finance, and Accounting, has helped lead the Pilots to an over-all record of 22-6 during the 2013-14 season. The lethal, sharp shooter currently ranks second in the NAIA for both three-point field goals made per game (3.889) and in total three-pointers made (105). Miller also ranks third in three-point field goal percentage (48.8%). Miller is currently the team's second leading scorer and is putting up 16.7 points per contest and has accumulated 1,369 career points in only 91 games played. In addition to his offensive production, Miller adds 2.9 rebounds and hands out 1.7 assists per contest.

Last season as a sophomore, Miller was an All-Crossroads League Third Team selection as well as an NCCAA Honorable Mention All-American. In that same season, he was named to not only the Capital One Academic All-District Team but also to the Capital One Academic All-American Third Team.

Miller and the twelfth-ranked Pilots have two regular season games remaining with hopes of returning to the NAIA D-II National Tournament in Point Lookout, Missouri beginning March 12.
