Myles impressive in Rider win

LAWRENCEVILLE -- After each 3-pointer went through, barely grazing the rim on its way down, Anthony Myles paused for a split second, casually pumped his fist and grinned.

This was the face of a player very much at home -- pleased but not surprised by his success.

If Rider is going to exceed expectations this season, players like Myles -- a touted freshman from Dover, Del. -- will have to make a major imact.

Saturday's 80-42 exhibition win over Division III TCNJ didn't offer many clues as to how the season will unfold. But the play of Myles and junior forward Brandon Penn were clear positives as the Broncs prepare for Friday's opener at UMass.

Myles scored 16 points off the bench in 24 minutes. He finished 5-for-8 from the floor and -- most impressively -- 4-for-5 from 3-point range. He'll have to manage a delicate balance this season, scoring when called upon but knowing his role as a secondary option and not trying to do too much.
