FORT WORTH — TCU played an exhibition game Sunday against Paul Quinn, winning 112-42, and the only Horned Frogs player who didn’t log time was Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year Mike Miles Jr.
Miles, the Frogs’ starting point guard, missed the game with swelling in his right toe, coach Jamie Dixon said Tuesday.
“It kind of caught us off guard,” he said. “He’s had really good practices for the last couple of weeks, and then was out. I’m still not sure exactly what it is — it’s the right toe — and they’re trying to figure it out.”
A source close to the program told Frogs Today that the star guard’s status for the season opener Monday night against Arkansas Pine-Bluff is uncertain. Miles underwent an x-ray, which did not reveal any structural damage to the toe, but the TCU doctors are still working to determine the cause of the swelling.
