How TCU is approaching the NCAA’s new start date for college basketball | Fort Worth Star Telegram

The NCAA pushed the start date of college basketball back two weeks due to COVID, but Jamie Dixon thinks the Frogs will still get their schedule figured out.

The expectation is for TCU to keep marquee non-conference matchups such as facing Texas A&M at Dickies Arena in early December, as well as hosting Providence in the Big 12/Big East Challenge at Schollmaier Arena. TCU also hopes to keep Colorado on its schedule as the two were scheduled to meet in Las Vegas on Dec. 19 as part of the Pac-12 Coast-to-Coast Challenge. Dixon said he and Colorado coach Tad Boyle talked about the game on Tuesday night.

TCU’s defense is going to be very, very good.

“It’s just all hard work and preparation,” Wallow said of continuing his success. “Constantly just working and trying to be the best person that I can be and be the best player I can be. I can’t control how other teams see me, I can only control how I perform on Saturdays.”

California wildfires and their impact on TCU students | TCU 360

The wildfires have a wide impact, and some TCU students are feeling that.

McKenzie Mock, a senior nursing major from Marian County, said her parents own their own coffee shop. Business has been difficult, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, since no one wants to leave their house, Mock said.

Even though the wildfire season happens every year, Mock said it is still difficult to prepare for.

“We know that firefighters stock up during this time with a bunch of tanks nearby, more firefighters on call and community groups that will go help fight if they need more people,” Mock said. “A lot of people I know have food ready to pack up, but you can never really be prepared.”
