TCU’s snub from the NCAA Tournament was somewhat eyebrow raising, but not necessarily a shock.
Although Texas Tech already achieved history by becoming the first school not named Kansas to win the regular season Big XII title in 14 years, the Red Raiders can’t be happy with how they fared against a struggling West Virginia.
Kalani Brown's injury-riddled senior season might've cost her the Big XII Player of the Year accolade, but her 15 point per game and 7 rebounds per game effort, was enough to earn her another First-Team All-Conference selection along with fellow junior teammate Lauren Cox, who was named Defensive Player of the Year, and Texas junior Sug Sutton.

Texas teams went 4-1 over the weekend in the annual Big XII vs SEC Challenge with Texas 11-9, 3-4) being the lone loss against Georgia, 98-88. Texas’ loss was its fifth in six games.

It’s the first full weekend of college basketball and there have already been some…uh let’s say, eye-opening results from the first few nights.
After two decades of missing March Madness, TCU broke through to reach the NCAA Tournament as an at-large team. The Horned Frogs were one-and-done, losing in the first round to Syracuse. The school has made back-to-back NCAAs just once in school history and that is in the early 1950s.
UTSA is expected to run much of its offense through power forward Marie Benson once again. But more than anything, the Roadrunners feel better about themselves because most of the players have reported to fall camp with a better understanding of how coach Kristen Holt wants them to play.
