FORT WORTH – Coach Jamie Dixon has become a juggling master for TCU.

No. 21 TCU was without the services of its big man, Eddie Lampkin Jr., on Sunday night, forcing Dixon to juggle the lineup once again.

In true master form, Dixon found the right combination as TCU rolled to a dominating 88-43 win over Mississippi Valley State.

Mike Miles Jr. was a magician on the court, leading the Horned Frogs with 15 points. Even more impressively, he shot 75 percent from 3-point land in the win.

“We’ve started 10 different lineups out of the 10 games we’ve played,” Dixon said. “Has anyone ever done that? That’s hard to do, especially when we’re only playing 11 different guys.”

Lampkin missed the game with a back injury that he aggravated last weekend in the win against SMU. He’ll be day-to-day going forward into Wednesday’s game on the road against Utah.
