STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut freshman basketball player Nate Miles told a newspaper Thursday night that he doesn't know if he will appeal being expelled from school after being arrested for violating a restraining order.


According to court documents, the 20-year-old Miles was served with a restraining order on Sept. 22, after a woman claimed he had attempted to force her into having sex. He is accused of violating the order by placing a phone call to the woman less than 20 minutes after receiving it.

Miles, expelled from UConn, enrolls at College of Southern Idaho

TWIN FALLS, Idaho -- Nate Miles, a freshman expelled earlier this month from the University of Connecticut, has enrolled at the College of Southern Idaho.

Miles, a 6-foot-7 forward, from Toledo, Ohio, arrived in Twin Falls on Tuesday. He started classes at the junior college Wednesday and took part in his first practice with the team. Miles, 20, was expelled from UConn after being arrested for violating a restraining order in September. The complaint has since been dismissed. Junior college rules require that Miles serve a 16-week probationary period, meaning he will not be able to take play in any Golden Eagles games until Feb. 6.

A lively little addition to the JC that gave Eddie Sutton his start. :D
