Miller & Bober Named MVC Scholar-Athletes of the Week

ST. LOUIS -- Eric Miller and Megan Bober of Creighton University have been selected Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athletes of the Week, Commissioner Doug Elgin announced today.  Miller and Bober were honored for their performances during the period of November 5-11.

Now in its 14th year of existence, The Valley’s Scholar-Athlete program honors its student-athletes for their athletic performance for a one-week period and academic success in the classroom.

A midfielder/defender for the eighth-ranked Creighton men’s soccer team, Miller, a sophomore from Woodbury, Minnesota, earned all-tournament team honors, as the Bluejays defeated SIUE, 2-1, in the title match at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship at Peoria, Illinois.

Miller, who has a 3.71 cumulative grade-point average in business, scored his first goal of the season and then assisted on Vincent Keller’s double-overtime, game-winning goal in the Bluejays’ 3-2 victory over Drake in the tournament semifinals on Friday, November 9.

A setter for the 23rd-ranked Creighton volleyball team, Bober, a senior from Murdock, Nebraska, had a double-double and a triple-double, as the Bluejays beat Indiana State (3-0 on November 9) and Illinois State (3-1 on November 10).  Bober enabled Creighton to claim at least a share of its first MVC regular-season title in program history.

A five-time MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week choice in 2012, Bober, who has a 3.827 cumulative grade-point average in exercise science, averaged 9.29 assists, 2.57 kills and 1.29 blocks while hitting .378 in seven sets.

To qualify for Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week laurels, student-athletes must carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20, completed at least one academic year at a Valley institution and must be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

Redshirt freshmen and first-year junior college transfers are not eligible.  In addition to the academic qualifications, student-athletes will be evaluated on their athletic performance for a one-week period.
