Miles, a junior post from Luling High School, posted back-to-back double-doubles to help lead the UMHB women to a 2-0 record during the week.
Miles opened the week with 18 points and 13 rebounds in a victory over Schreiner University before following up with a 17-point, 14-board performance in a win over Texas Lutheran to close out the week. She shot 48 percent from the field and added five steals as the Cru women clinched a berth in the ASC Championship Tournament.
