TCU Basketball is looking toward the 2018-2019 season with high expectations, and even higher hopes. And for them to reach their ceiling as a team, they will need a big year out of senior point guard Alex Robinson.
Good news for Frog fans, it appears he’s more than ready to deliver, and has the support on a national scale.
This week, Robinson received a pair of prestigious preseason honors, as he was named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list and to the Big 12 preseason All-Conference team. Robinson, who averaged nearly nine points and over six assists per game last year, played a huge role in bringing the Frogs back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 20 years. A Fort Worth native, and the son of an alumni of TCU Basketball, the one time Aggie has flourished since returning home, moving his way up the list for several all-time records. Alex posted the sixth highest single-season assist total as a junior, with 190 dimes, and set the single-game school record with 17 in January against Iowa State. The 17 assists also broke the Big 12 Conference single-season record.
The conference’s Newcomer of the Year in his first season at TCU, Robinson has shown great leadership on and off the court. He is joined on the preseason all conference team by Cameron Lard (Iowa State), Udoka Azubuike (Kansas), Quentin Grimes (Kansas), Kerwin Roach II (Texas), Jericho Sims (Texas) and Jarrett Culver (Texas Tech).
TCU opens their season at home on November 7th with an 8:00pm tip against Cal State Bakersfield.
