Following Thursday night’s 62-48 win over West Virginia in the team’s Big XII opener, the Horned Frogs’ record pushed to 11-1 making it their best-ever start. The team’s current eight-game win streak is currently the second-longest.
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.

After posting their second straight winning season UTA Lady Mavs head coach Krista Gerlich replaced a strong senior class that had graduated with the top incoming signing class in the Sun Belt Conference.
It’s a new era in Arlington as former Texas Tech assistant Chris Ogden takes the reins of the UT-Arlington program with hopes of taking the Mavericks to even bigger heights after winning 20 games for three straight seasons.
