TIFFIN — Former Wellsville High School All-Ohioan Justin Miller helped the Tiffin University men’s basketball team win the Florida Tech Winter Classic on Wednesday.

Miller shot 5-of-8 from three-point range for 15 points in a 78-74 win over host Florida Tech at the Clemente Center in Melbourne, Fla.

The Dragons advanced to the championship game by beating Embry-Riddle, 99-95, on Tuesday.

Miller, a 6-foot-2 sophomore guard, is averaging 5.5 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.6 steals in 10.9 minutes a game during the Dragons’ 5-7 start.

Miller will be closer to home as Tiffin will play at 16th-ranked West Liberty (W.Va.) on Dec. 30, at Walsh on Jan. 3 and at Malone on Jan. 5.
