A confident Nicky Miller stood near center court, pounding his palms together while nodding his head toward the bench over what had just transpired in the waning seconds of Wednesday’s matchup between No. 3 Gonzaga and No. 1 DeMatha.

The celebration concealed the relief felt by the Gonzaga junior. Moments earlier, Miller had defied his own expectations by rising to block the shot of a taller player, effectively sealing a 73-70 road win for the Eagles in a WCAC thriller in Hyattsville.
