The excitement is building for TCU Basketball this fall, with the Horned Frogs’ kicking off their season by hosting the first ever “Schollmaier Live” event on October 25th. In addition to a chance to meet the many new faces of men’s and women’s basketball, the free event will feature shooting contests (for fans, too!), a slam dunk competition (not for fans!), and performances by the band and spirit groups.
The regular season begins on November 7th, when Jamie Dixon’s team faces Southwestern at 7:00pm, with a slate that features a game at the new Dickies Arena, when the Frogs and Trojans square off at 8:00pm on ESPN2.
A tough conference slate follows, beginning with a date with the Iowa State Cyclones, who come to town on January 4th for a 5:00pm tip of either ESPN2 or ESPNU, with a road date with K State following three days later.
The Frogs are back home on the 11th of January to take on the Pokes, before playing back to back road games against West Virginia and Oklahoma. Home games against Texas Tech and Texas sandwich the Big 12/SEC showdown with Arkansas, before TCU hits the road once again.
It’s a quirky schedule in the sense that TCU never plays back to back home games, but has two instances of having to go on the road twice. The Frogs have just one potential Big Monday matchup and it’s on the road - February 10th at Texas Tech - after hosting the sport’s signature game each of the last two seasons.
TCU’s nonconference games will go on sale Oct. 18. Big 12 Conference tickets will go on sale Dec. 14. Those interested in being placed on a wait list for TCU season tickets should visit the ticket office website.
TCU is coming off its third-straight season of 20 or more wins. Jamie Dixon enters his fourth season as head coach of the Horned Frogs, which are led by returning starters Desmond Bane and Kevin Samuel.
