TCU Men’s Basketball is currently on its way to Kansas City, Missouri to compete in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship. Regardless of where the Horned Frogs finish, the purple and white will be back in KCMO when they tip off their 2020 campaign in November.

TCU, California, Northwestern and South Carolina have been selected to square off during the 2020 Hall of Fame Classic from Nov. 23-24. The four-team tournament will put a nice finish on Hall of Fame Weekend, which includes the 15th Annual National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Nov. 22.

The Horned Frogs have limited experience against their prospective opponents, having played only three games against Northwestern and two games against California. TCU has never faced South Carolina in a head-to-head matchup.

Both Northwestern and California have struggled mightily this season, with the Wildcats (8-22) ranking 13th in the Big Ten Conference and the Golden Bears (13-18) currently eighth in the Pac-12 Conference. The Gamecocks (18-13) are sixth in the SEC.

TCU (16-15) opens the Big 12 Conference Championship this week as the No. 7 seed. The Horned Frogs will face No. 10 seed Kansas State on Wednesday at 8 p.m. and the winner will receive No. 2 seed Baylor on Thursday at 6 p.m.
