TCU basketball looks to snap two-game losing streak back home against No. 18 Texas Tech | The Star-Telegram

This is a huge game for the confidence of the Horned Frogs.

Losing consecutive games in the Big 12 isn’t the end of the world. In fact, only No. 1 Baylor and No. 3 Kansas have yet to lose at least two conference games.

Frogs fans are encouraged to wear purple to go along with TCU’s purple uniforms against the Red Raiders.

“You’re not going to go undefeated in this league,” Dixon said. “We lost to two good teams on the road. We’ve got to win at home. We’ve taken care of home court and we’ve got to do that against a good team coming in.”

PAY ATTENTION THE TCU WOMEN’S BASKETBALL!!! They are very good.

“I probably could’ve done a better job of trying to move without the ball to help myself to get open,” Robertson said. “But TCU did a really good job. They were switching their screens and always knew where I was.”

TCU shot 53.3% from the floor.

Oklahoma missed all 10 of its second-half 3-pointers.

New Orleans Saints first-round pick will likely come from TCU | Who Dat Dish

Jalen Reagor deserves Drew Brees. This blog also has Gladney as a first round target for the Saints.

Jalen Reagor has immense potential attached to him. He has a natural instinct to find the open spot, find the ball, and make a big play to open up the game. Reagor almost seems like a better receiver when he has to stretch out and go up and get the football.

Reagor boasts as one of the fastest players in this year’s draft class. He thrives in the vertical passing game and that is exactly what the Saints need with Michael Thomas playing the short-yardage game most of this season.

TCU’s kicker enters the NCAA’s transfer portal | The Star-Telegram

Great to see Bunce able to pursue other opportunities after his accident.

Bunce, TCU’s kickoff specialist and long field goal kicker, was involved in a scooter accident the day before fall camp last season. Injuries sustained from that accident sidelined him for much of his senior season, but he returned and was healthy enough to handle kickoff duties later in the season.

Bunce could only kickoff and then sprinted to the sidelines to avoid contact. He kicked off 14 times with six touchbacks on the season.

Bunce appeared in just four games, though, which allowed him to obtain a redshirt for the 2019 season.
