TCU basketball picks up big-time commitment from 4-star point guard | The Star-Telegram

Sound the alarm folks, the Horned Frogs have a top ten signing class.

Farabello, a 6-foot-2, 165-pounder, announced his commitment on Twitter. He is rated as a 4-star guard by 247Sports.

Farabello had interest from Cincinnati and Davidson. He visited Cincinnati before making his official recruiting visit to TCU last weekend.

Farabello, who is from Argentina, plays for the NBA Global Academy. He impressed coaches last summer playing for Argentina in the FIBA u18 Americas Championship, averaging 8.3 points, 5.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds a game.

Home-course advantage? Hardly as TCU has disappointing tournament at Colonial | The Star-Telegram

It was a loaded field, but would have loved to see the Frogs show out a bit.

“The truth of the matter is we’ve played here so many times that I really expected us to play better than we did,” Montigel said. “I’m very disappointed. I’m very proud of Stefano. He played great and I feel like we’ve just got to get some other guys to perform at that level.

“We play here all the time and I saw things today that I never saw in any of our qualifiers. It just looked like we tried to force, we got behind the eight-ball and we tried to force it a little bit on a few holes that you can’t force it. You’ve got to be patient and hit kind of the fat part of the green. If we would’ve done that a little more, we would’ve been better.”

I will just leave this here...

This TCU student said while Crowder has freedom of speech like everyone else, it wasn’t a good idea.

“I would just say that even though that is his opinion this probably isn’t the best place to discuss it…considering all that we have going on right now,” she said.

Another student said she thinks it was a ploy for attention.

“I just think what is the point of riling everybody up… also he’s just getting everybody’s attention and that’s all he really wants,” she said.
