TCU still could get in, but it will take a win Saturday against Oklahoma, and probably three-ish wins in the Big 12 tournament. Senior Brandon Parrish, who scored 11 points and pulled down three rebounds, knows how tough a loss this one is.
“This one hurts more than any loss I’ve had since I’ve been here,” said TCU guard Brandon Parrish, a senior from Arlington Seguin who scored 11 points in the final home game of his college career. “This is definitely the most devastating because of the fact we had so much on the line and we kind of gave it away. This one was tough. It’s going to be hard to sleep tonight.”
Vladimir Brodziansky led the way for TCU with 18 points and seven rebounds, while Kenrich Williams scored 13 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, good for his 12th double-double of the season. But, it wasn’t enough in the end.
This is another one of those games that Dixon knows his team has to learn how to win - especially at home. The Frogs went 13-6 at home, but the last two really hurt. ''Couldn't have been a more disappointing loss than this,'' Dixon said.
This would be a big loss for TCU, as Traver came into the season as one of the Frogs’ most trusted/utilized arms. Coach Schloss spoke to what was bothering Traver so much, that he had to pull himself from Tuesday’s game against Rice.
“He said he just felt a little pull back there in his lat, where he had that injury last year,” Schlossnagle said. “They’re hoping maybe it’s just a scar tissue thing. They’re hoping maybe it’s just two weeks, something like that.”
