The wait is over.

After 20 years in the wilderness, TCU men’s basketball is finally heading back to the NCAA Tournament. TCU is officially in the field of 68 after they were announced as an at-large bid during the Selection Sunday show.

TCU’s first round matchup, location, and TV schedule will be released shortly.

The wait has been long and arduous, and seemingly never-ending at times as the Frogs struggled in some seasons just to win a single conference game, more or less string enough wins together to reach any postseason tournament.

But, in just his second season at the helm, Jamie Dixon has turned the program around. Of course, if you ask him he’ll quickly tell you that he already had the players to compete when he got to TCU, a fact for which he’s more than willing to credit his predecessor Trent Johnson.

Of course, credit must go to guys like Kenrich Williams and Vladimir Brodziansky as well, guys who stayed through the leanest of times, playing in a high school gym, winning few to no games in the Big 12, to help get this program to where it is today.
