Briefs: Miller, Drury sign with Lewis-Clark State College

Sun., Aug. 22, 2010

Shane Miller, a 6-4 guard/wing from Moscow, Idaho, and Spencer Drury, a 6-foot point guard from Spokane, have signed to play basketball for Lewis-Clark State College in the 2010-11 season.

Miller, the North Idaho Player of the Year and a first-team All-State selection in 2007, played his freshman year at Treasure Valley Community College and earned first-team NAACC All-Region honors. He transferred to Central Washington the following year, but had to redshirt because of transfer rules. He played in 20 games last season, averaging 10.4 minutes per outing.

Drury, a freshman, comes to LCSC from University High School, where he played point guard and served as the team captain this past season. Drury averaged nearly 12 points a game.
