Arguably the greatest female basketball player ever, Miller became a four-time All-American at USC and was named the Naismith Player of the Year three times.

Why Her: While in high school at Riverside Polytechnic (Calif.), Miller scored 105 points in a game against Notre Vista. In 1986, Miller superseded her male counterparts across the nation when Sports Illustrated deemed her the best male or female player in college basketball. Miller rounded out her athletic career at USC with 3,018 total career points and led the Trojans to two NCAA titles.

Ultimate Moment: While still in college at USC, Miller participated in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and led the U.S. women’s basketball national team to its first gold medal.

Funky Fact: As a highly sought after high school prospect, Miller reportedly received more than 250 scholarship offers.
