It started out disappointing, the Frogs being relegated to the National Invitational Tournament for the second time in three seasons since Jamie Dixon took over the program in 2016.
But disappointment soon turned to message sending, as TCU took down their first three NIT opponents on their home floor, defeating each by double-digits in convincing fashion.

First up is Texas, a team they’re all too familiar with. Get past their Big 12 rival, and a mid-major with history awaits - either the Shockers of Wichita State or the only team to beat TCU in the preseason, senior-laden Lipscomb.
