TCU men’s basketball coach Trent Johnson knocked on his wooden desk as he considered the injury situation he dealt with in 2013. It’s a new year, and he hopes 2014 brings better health for his players.
One season is over. The Mountaineers finished the nonconference portion of the 2013-14 basketball season with an 8-5 record, winning the games they were expected to win — Mount St. Mary’s, Duquesne, Georgia Southern, Presbyterian, Old Dominion, Loyola, Marshall and William & Mary — and losing all of the games against power conference teams — Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Missouri, Gonzaga and Purdue.
TCU will begin conference play on Saturday when they tip off against the West Virginia Mountaineers at 3 p.m. at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
