According to TCU Basketball stats and info, senior forward Kenrich Williams and junior point guard Alex Robinson are on the precipice of major career milestones - both of which could be reached during Tuesday night’s Big 12 contest against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

Williams, who is averaging 14.5 points per game this season, is six points shy of 1,000 for his career. He has scored at least six points in all but one game this season, the preseason matchup against Tennessee Tech, would be the 34th Horned Frog to reach that milestone, and the first since 2015, when both Kyan Anderson and Amric Fields reached the thousand point mark.

Alex Robinson needs ten more assists to tie his head coach, former Frog Jamie Dixon, for eighth all-time in career assists, and will have done so in just one and a half seasons. Robinson has reached double-digit assists just one time this season, when he had a school-record 17 against Iowa State, but has had nine dimes four times, including both of his last two games. Corey Santee, now a graduate assistant on Dixon’s staff, is the all-time assist leader with 575, while Dixon sits eight with 353. Robinson has moved into the top ten this season, and made it his stated goal going into the season to break the career record, something he may accomplish this season, but most assuredly will before his playing career is over. You can bet their will be plenty of trash talk between A Rob, Dixon, and Santee leading up to tomorrow’s game.

TCU desperately needs a win in Stillwater Tuesday evening to keep their tournament dreams on track, and big games by their two stars would go a long way towards achieving that. If they can write their names in the record books in the process, all the better.
