Highland Park graduate Will Miller scored 11 points — including three 3-pointers — off the bench as Mount St. Mary’s rolled past Robert Morris 88-71 on Tuesday in the Northeast Conference championship game, earning the school’s first NCAA tournament berth since 2008.

The Mountaineers (16-16) will find out their first-round opponent on Sunday, but given their record, expect to see them in a preliminary-round game in Dayton, Ohio, to start off March Madness.

Miller, a freshman, is averaging 5.1 points per game and has made 48 treys this season.
