GameThread: No. 9 TCU vs. No. 1 Kansas - Big 12 Tournament Quarterfinal

The Frogs knocked off Kansas State for a shot at the regular season champs. The winner will take on Baylor in the semifinals.

If you haven't read Andrew's extensive work prepping for this game, shame on you. Also, go do it really quickly. Here are some snippets.

Third Chance Points

This isn't your typical #1 vs. #9 matchup. The Frogs kept things relatively close in the regular season, and the Jayhawks are facing some significant injury issues. It will be very hard for TCU to come away with a win this afternoon in front of a partisan Jayhawk crowd in Kansas City, but if the Frogs can stick to their game plan and play smart basketball, we could have an interesting game on our hands.

TCU vs. Kansas Preview

With TCU riding a recent hot streak and Kansas suffering from a handful of late-season injuries, this afternoon's game could be closer than a lot of people expect. An upset win for the Frogs would likely put them in the NIT field, as of right now.
