TCU top scorer Mike Miles Jr. (knee) out Tuesday vs. WVU

TCU guard Mike Miles Jr. has a hyperextended right knee and will miss the Horned Frogs’ Tuesday game against visiting West Virginia.

Miles leads the 15th-ranked Horned Frogs in scoring and ranks second in the Big 12 at 18.1 points per game.

Miles was injured in the opening minutes of TCU’s 81-74 overtime loss to Mississippi State on Saturday.

It’s unknown how long Miles will be sidelined, but multiple reports said an MRI did not show any serious problems.

“I don’t anticipate him being out as long as others have been,” coach Jamie Dixon said Monday.

Dixon added of his team, “We’re evolving. We’ve got to change. We’ve got to adjust every game.”

Miles is also averaging three assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals this season in 18 games (17 starts).

The junior was also named to the Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 list on Monday. The Wooden Award is given to the best college basketball player in the country each season.
