TCU Basketball came to play in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament Wednesday evening, jumping out to a big halftime lead and hanging on for a three point win. With the victory, the Frogs put themselves in a great position to dance their way into the NCAA Tournament, but are still in danger of losing their March Madness dance card to bid thieves in conference tourneys over the weekend. Beat the number one seed? You can all but guarantee entrance into the 68 team field announced Sunday.
The Frog were swept by the Wildcats this season, but their purple brethren will be without their best player - senior forward Dean Wade. With their seeding all but locked up, can Jamie Dixon’s crew take advantage and stay alive for a Big 12 Tournament championship? We are about to find out.
