This happened a lot last night. Eric Moreland and the Oregon State Beavers frustrate Kyan Anderson and the TCU Horned Frogs. Credit to Building the Dam for the image.
Well, that got ugly fast and stayed ugly throughout- TCU fell to Oregon State on a night where it seemed the Beavers could do anything but miss, shooting an otherworldly .658 percentage from the floor and hitting 52% of their threes. Though that's not the full story of the game- Oregon State's dominance was present throughout, as the badgers outrebounded, outblocked and out-stole the Frogs, giving the Frogs even fewer chances to catch up with the Beavers blistering shooting. Sadly, the road ends here for the Frogs, though it is fitting that the end came on the road- where TCU momentum went to die all season. The Mountain West era is officially over for TCU basketball, and the shadows of the Big 12 are looming large as March Madness continues on- those schools that we're counting on to provide wins in football every year (Iowa State, Kansas State, Kansas and Baylor) all happen to be pretty darn good at this basketball thing right now, and West Virginia and Texas made the tournament as well. Coach Jim Christian will have a lot of work to do on the recruiting trail and in the gym to get the Frogs ready for the Big 12, but the turnaround this season has shown that TCU can still win basketball games, and has given fans enough reason to be optimistic as a whole different class of basketball team will be visiting Daniel Meyer next season. Great season Frogs, let's hope next year will be even better.
