Miles away

LOWELL, Mass. --- The National Prep Showcase is running at UMass-Lowell this weekend, and several UConn recruits were expected to participate. One prominent name is conspicuously absent, however.

Nate Miles, the well-traveled postgrad student from The Patterson (N.C.) School, is not with his team at the event. According to his coach, Chris Chaney, Miles was kept back for disciplinary reasons.

"It's nothing major," Chaney said. "We're being super-hard on him."

The coach added that a few other Patterson players were also left back, "all for the same reason." When asked if it was simply a violation of team rules, Chaney agreed.

Miles has signed his National Letter of Intent to attend UConn and is still hoping to qualify academically so that he can enroll at Storrs for the second semester. He is slated to take his S.A.T. soon.

"He's going good. It's an everyday process," Chaney said. "He's working hard, going to class."

UConn commits Alex Oriyakhi and Jamaal Coombs, both juniors at Tilton School (N.H.) are slated to play Champlain St. Lambert of Montreal on Sunday at 1 p.m. Tyreke Evans, one of the top-rated senior shooting guards in the country who has pared his list down to UConn, Memphis, Louisville, Texas, Seton Hall and Villanova, is playing today at 3 p.m. and tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. for American Christian (Pa.)
