The team announced on Thursday that Miles has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.

Miles hurt her knee back on Feb. 26 when Notre Dame was playing Louisville, and it appeared to be a non-contact injury. While Notre Dame ended up making a comeback to win that game, Miles didn’t return to the contest and hasn’t played since. She missed the ACC tournament, which Notre Dame lost in the second round.

Miles is a tremendously promising player, already one of the brightest in women’s college ball. She’s got three career triple-doubles, including one in the 2022 NCAA Tournament (which made her the first freshman, male or female, to pull off a triple-double in the Tourney). Just this week Miles was named an AP second-team All-American as well as a USBWA third-team All-American.

Over the 2022-2023 season, Miles averaged 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game.

Notre Dame’s first game of the tournament, which is against 14th-seed Southern Utah, is on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST.
