NICEVILLE, Fla. (AP) Micah Peavy scored 16 points and Mike Miles Jr. added 15 in his second game back from an injury to lead TCU over No. 25 Iowa, 79-66, in the Emerald Coast Classic championship game on Saturday night.
Miles, the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year, was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. The point guard returned to action in the semifinal round Friday after missing two games with a left foot injury.
The Horned Frogs (5-1) broke open what had been a nip-and-tuck battle up until about three minutes into the second half, when TCU went on a 13-4 run to grab a 58-43 lead. TCU coach Jamie Dixon credited his team's defense.
