FORT WORTH — TCU will be without its leading scorer for the foreseeable future after Mike Miles Jr. went down with a right knee hyperextension during Saturday’s loss to Mississippi State.

TCU fell four spots to No. 15 in this week’s AP poll following the 81-74 loss to the Bulldogs. The Frogs are one of six Big 12 teams currently ranked in the top 15, and are ranked for a program-record ninth consecutive week.

Meanwhile, Miles was one of 20 players named to the late-season Wooden Award watch list Monday.

During his media availability Monday, coach Jamie Dixon said the Frogs’ must adjust while Miles works his way back.

“We’re evolving,” Dixon said. “We’ve got to change. We’ve got to adjust every game.”

TCU has dealt with missing players for the bulk of the season. Guard Damion Baugh missed the first six games of the season due to an NCAA suspension. Micah Peavy missed four games with a back injury. Eddie Lampkin Jr. has had two stints where he’s missed games, once with a back injury and recently with a high ankle sprain. Emanuel Miller and Rondel Walker have both missed games as well.
