Sarah Miles leaves game after collision

WACO, Texas -- West Virginia guard Sarah Miles left her second-round NCAA tournament game at Baylor after her right leg folded awkwardly in a collision Tuesday night.

Miles was guarding Baylor's Odyssey Sims and both players fell to the floor. Miles was called for a foul on the play with about 16 minutes left. Soon after she went to the locker room, her teammates responded with an inspired a 9-0 run -- including a 3-pointer by 6-3 center Ayana Dunning -- to close the gap to 58-51.

After remaining down for several minutes, Miles was helped to the locker room without putting any pressure on her right leg. There was no immediate word on the extent of the injury, but the senior was on crutches when she rejoined her team on the bench with about 6 minutes left.

Sims got up gingerly but stayed in the game.

Miles is the only West Virginia player from Texas, and had family and friends from San Antonio at the game.

Miles left the Mountaineers' season-ending 82-68 loss with four points, two rebounds and two assists.
