FORT WORTH, Texas - Mike Miles scored 11 of his 15 points in the first half and No. 21 TCU rolled to an easy 88-43 win over Mississippi Valley State.

TCU (9-1) has won seven consecutive games since a one-point loss to Northwestern State on Nov. 14 briefly knocked it out of The Associated Press Top 25.

The win was TCU's largest margin of victory this season and the largest under head coach Jamie Dixon since a 37-point decision over Tennessee Tech in November 2017.

TCU led by as many as 48 points while shooting better than 50% up until the final minute of the game. The Horned Frogs also shot 50% (9 for 18) from 3-point range.

Miles, a junior guard, was 5 of 8 from the field, including 3 for 4 from long distance, with all his 3s in the first half. Damion Baugh and JaKobe Coles added 12 points apeice. Emanuel Miller finished with 11 points.

Mississippi Valley State (1-11) was led by Rayquan Brown's 16 points.

The Frogs led 53-20 at the half and extended their lead in the second half. All 10 players who entered the game before halftime had at least two points at the break.

In the first half, TCU extended its lead to 35 points behind nearly 60% shooting from the field. The Horned Frogs were even more proficient from deep, shooting 9 for 14 for nearly 65%.

Meanwhile, the Delta Devils struggled to score. They shot 34.6% from the field and were 0 for 6 from 3-point range.

TCU also made MVS pay for turnovers. The Frogs scored 28 points off of turnovers, including 17 in the first half. MVS also struggled from the line, making just 7 of 19 shots.
