UTSA hosts No. 9 TCU on Wednesday at Roadrunner Field | GoUTSA

The Frogs are looking to start a new winning streak.

TCU leads the all-time series with UTSA, 9-3, having claimed the only meeting in San Antonio, 7-3 in 2021. UTSA’s last wins over the Horned Frogs came in a three-game series over two days in 1994 to open the season, a UTSA sweep. TCU has hit .280 as a team through 11 games, with 24 doubles, six triples, eight homers and 91 runs scored, stealing 12 of 15 bases. On the mound, TCU has a 2.62 team ERA with 127 strikeouts and just 34 walks in 96.1 innings. Phillip Sikes leads the team with a .419 average, driving in a club-best 15 RBI. Brayden Taylor and Hunter Wolfe have each cranked two homers, with Zach Humphreys belting three. In relief, Haylen Green (1-0, 3.65 ERA) has appeared in a team-leading five games, with River Ridings (0-0, 0.00 ERA) and Drew Hill (1-0, 1.29 ERA) each working in at least three games in relief.

Ashton Cozart says getting TCU offer feels like a dream | 247 Sports

An under the radar player that could be a great fit at his “dream school”.

“It still feels like a dream! This one definitely hits different,” he said. “I can’t wait to go visit and meet everyone. In the meantime I just got to grind harder now.”

Cozart now holds eight offers on the table. In addition to TCU, the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder has offers from Mississippi State, Arizona State, Maryland, Pitt, Virginia, Miami and Kansas.

TCU has now extended three receivers from the 2023 recruiting class. Cozart joins Jalen Hale and Jaxson Lavender as receiver prospects that have been offered by the Frogs. TCU does not currently have any commitments for the 2023 class.

Two TCU guards named to All-Big 12 | WFAA

A nice honor for two talented players.

Miles ranks 13th in the Big 12 in scoring with 13.8 points per game. Among freshmen, his scoring average ranks 16th in the nation and second in the conference.

Miles has scored in double-figures in 18 of 24 games played and has been TCU’s best free-throw shooter at 83.3 percent, which ranks seventh in the Big 12. He had a season-high 28 points against No. 12 Missouri.

Other members of the Big 12 All-Freshman Team include Greg Brown (Texas), Jalen Bridges (WVU), Cade Cunningham (OSU) and Jalen Wilson (KU).

TCU remains winless against ranked teams as Texas runs away for a 76-64 victory | The Star-Telegram

Jamie Dixon hasn’t not beaten a ranked team in a long time.

TCU was led by junior guard RJ Nembhard’s 13 points. The Frogs finished with 22 turnovers, the fourth game they’ve hit the 20-turnover mark.

Nembhard said the turnovers number played a “huge” factor in TCU’s loss.

“Our goal is 10 or less turnovers,” Nembhard said. “In the second half, it led to their transition 3s or scrambling around for easy shots. Turnovers are huge. We’ve got to focus on that. We’re going into the conference tournament trying to get better at a lot of things.”

TCU has locked in the No. 8-seed for the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City. The Horned Frogs will face No. 9-seed Kansas State in the opening round at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the T-Mobile Center.
