The Frogs offered Khari earlier this week.

- One recruit to keep a close eye on is New Orleans Carver defensive end Khari Coleman. The 6-foot-2, 213-pounder is currently committed to Kansas but TCU among other schools have continued to recruit him hard. TCU is going to see him today and tomorrow he and his parents will arrive in Fort Worth for an official visit this weekend. Coleman is currently ranked as the No. 27 weakside defensive end in the nation according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

TCU Volleyball Advances with 3-2 Win Over Miami | Go Frogs

The Horned Frogs move on with a fist-round win.

TCU volleyball used a balanced offense, strong defense and a masterful performance from sophomore Katie Clark to advance past Miami (OH), 3-2, Thursday afternoon inside the Stroh Center. The Horned Frogs advance to the second round of the NIVC where they will play the winner of Indiana Purdue-Fort Wayne and host, Bowling Green.

“We went a little more up and down than we would have liked but, in the end, we’re all competitors and when it came time to really step up and compete, I thought we did a really good job of that,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “Kenz (McKenzie Nichols) did a really good job especially down the stretch of managing our offensive play and giving our hitters some really good looks. We’re excited to get back out here and have another opportunity to play tomorrow.”

Basketball:

USC travels to TCU seeking signature nonconference basketball win | OC Register

It’s a big matchup for both teams.

USC travels to play TCU on Friday in Fort Worth in the first collegiate game played at the new Dickies Arena. With four games left in USC’s nonconference slate, the Horned Frogs represent a dwindling chance for the Trojans to get a signature nonconference win that will count toward their March résumé, given that the win over Villanova happened in the preseason.

TCU (6-1) is led by guard Desmond Bane, averaging 18.7 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. The Horned Frogs are 26th in the nation in scoring defense and average 10 made 3-pointers per game.

TCU will play first basketball game at Dickies Arena. Will it become an annual event? | The Star-Telegram

I think it’s good for the school and Fort Worth.

As far as TCU is concerned, it hopes to land more marquee non-conference matchups that would make sense to play at Dickies Arena. TCU played USC at Staples Center in Los Angeles last season.

The Horned Frogs have no future games under contract at Dickies Arena, and they are under no contractual obligation to play games at the venue on a yearly basis, although they aren’t opposed to it.

“We are looking at a number of future matchups in the non-conference portion of our schedule that make sense,” TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said.

It does not make sense for TCU to give up home Big 12 games to play at Dickies Arena. The university continues to try and boost the home-court advantage of Schollmaier Arena, and losing those games would impede that progress.

Bane Named to Watch List for Robertson Trophy | Go Frogs

Desmond will be on a lot of postseason lists.

The award is given annually by the United States Basketball Writers Association to the most outstanding men’s college basketball player. Since its founding in 1956, the USBWA has named a national player of the year. In the 1997-98 season, the award was named in honor of the legendary Oscar Robertson, “The Big O.” In addition, the USBWA selects an All-America team and All-District teams, players and coaches of the year. This year’s award will be presented at the NCAA Final Four in Atlanta in April. In January, the USBWA will release a second watch list, followed by finalists after All-America balloting is complete in March. Duke’s Zion Williamson was the recipient of last season’s Oscar Robertson Trophy.
