TCU guard Mike Miles announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he had received an invitation to USA Basketball’s U-19 training camp, which will be held later this year.
Miles’ announcement came through the TCU basketball Twitter account.
Miles should be one of the best returning players in the Big 12 next season. He’ll be the leader for a TCU team that lost nine players to the transfer portal after the season. Plus, TCU is waiting to hear if guard R.J. Nembhard will return after declaring for the NBA Draft, but retaining his eligibility.
