Love Dixon’s mindset of embracing success instead of hiding from the pressure it brings.

The Horned Frogs have won 15 straight heading into this week’s games against Texas Southern on Monday and William & Mary on Friday, needing one more win to tie the school record and two to break it.

“It’s a good thing. But you know why? Because it brings notoriety to a place that needs notoriety for their basketball program and their athletic department,” Dixon said. “You can say we’ve won in football, but they still don’t get the attention they deserve. So I think it’s good.”

The Frogs go for a school record 16th straight victory this evening at home.

“In our minds, we should have won both those games by 20,” Dixon said. “So hopefully we learn from that. You want to be the team that learns from wins, not the team that learns from losses.”

TCU ranks seventh nationally averaging 19.2 assists a game and 17th with 87.3 points a game.

Senior wing player Kenrich Williams leads the Frogs with 14.2 points and 10.1 rebounds a game. Jaylen Fisher averages 6.1 assists per game and Alex Robinson is at 4.5 a game.

Texas Southern, which ranks 344th nationally allowing 86.9 points a game, is led by Jefferson’s 22.8 points a game. He is a 5-foot-7, 150-pound sophomore guard.

Could Reagan Pebley’s team be on the verge of a top 25 ranking?

The Horned Frogs (8-2) flaunted their bench’s firepower against the Demons (4-6), with the reserves racking up 52 points and 23 rebounds. Amy Okonkwo led the charge with 19 points and a career-high five steals.

Depth shined as every TCU player earned at least 13 minutes. Jordan Moore led the starters with 18 points and eight rebounds, while sophomore Adeola Akomolafe took advantage of extra minutes to record 12 points and seven rebounds.
