TCU wondering how spring break will impact NIT crowd | The Star-Telegram

If you are in Texas, get to Fort Worth Wednesday night. This teams deserves a rocking arena. And tickets are so affordable!!!

“I’m going to hold out judgment,” Dixon said Monday when asked if he anticipated a rocking arena for the first-round matchup. “As far as our crowd, I think the NIT is always a challenge with the quick turnaround and how that plays out. There’s a lot of excitement for our program. They’re excited about the young guys that we’ve got coming back for next year. But it’s also spring break.”

TCU readies for guard-oriented Fresno State team on hot streak | The Star-Telegram

While the Frogs struggled down the stretch, the Bulldogs hit their stride. Both teams play a wide-open, free-flowing style of offense that should be a blast to watch.

“I’ve heard they play four guards a lot of the time,” Parrish said. “So I feel like that kind of fits into what we do, the way we play offense. We probably match up well. And we play in the Big 12. We’ve been through the gauntlet. We believe that we’re ready for anybody.”

The Bulldogs have allowed 70.3 points per game and rank No. 182 nationally in rebounding (35.8). In its lone matchup against a Top 25 opponent, Fresno State fell to then-No. 20 Oregon, 75-63.

No one expected them to hold onto the number one ranking all season long... and all they care about is finishing there.

The Horned Frogs fell from the top spot in the USA Today coaches, Baseball America and D1Baseball.com polls released Monday following a series loss at UC-Irvine, which finished a 2-2 week.

TCU is ranked No. 3 by Baseball America and D1Baseball.com and No. 4 in the USA Today list.

No. 6 Cal men’s tennis loses second and third consecutive matches to TCU, Texas | The Daily Californian

At least one TCU program has made the most of their west coast swing, as tennis is absolutely on fire right now.

In singles, the Bears’ bottom three courts won with No. 109 Bergevi winning in three sets. Cal’s top three courts were unable to pull through, however, as No. 14 Lakat, No. 53 junior Billy Griffith, and No. 30 senior Andre Goransson all lost to players ranked substantially beneath them. The match came down to Goransson’s court, where he lost 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-1 to No. 84 sophomore Alex Rybakov.
