TCU completes sweep at Wichita State with 12-5 victory | The Star-Telegram

Dalton Horton made the most of his first career weekend start, and the heart of the order broke the heart of the Shockers as Skoug and Baker led the charge in the batter's box.

The sweep was the second this season for the Frogs, who have won five straight.

It was the 12th time this season TCU has scored 10 or more runs. Warner stretched his hitting streak to 16 games.

Gary Patterson's statue a symbol of TCU's renaissance | The Star-Telegram

While he wasn't initially open to the idea, Patterson has made peace with his bronze likeness, seeing it as an opportunity to thank all of the people along the way that made his success possible.

"Very few times in your life do you get to thank all of those that have made this possible. So that’s kind of the way I look at this statue. I get an opportunity in my career to be able to pause for just a second and be able to thank all of those.

"Davey and Dutch didn’t get a chance to do that."

Boykin becomes just the seventh Horned Frog to be a two-time recipient of the Dan Rogers MVP award.

Derrick Kindred's season is looked back on as almost mythological, but soon enough his future might shine brighter. Now that his final hurdles are cleared, he can move on to supporting his girlfriend, Zahna Medley, who is headed to the WNBA combine.

All he had to show at pro day was how many times he could bench press 225 pounds. He skipped that activity at the combine because there was fear the clavicle was still healing. Early on pro day, he pressed the weight 17 times. Mission accomplished. He could breathe easy.

Playing their fourth match in six days, the No. 35 ranked Frogs bounced back from an early set back to take the match from a conference opponent.

"I am really proud of them. I think what we have learned as a team in this stretch is that whether the team is ranked No. 30 in the country or not ranked, ever team is a good team. They will always come ready to play."
