Frogs vs. SMU tonight

The football team has the week off, but basketball season is just getting started and there's a feeling out there that this could finally be the year that the TCU men's hoops squad turns the corner and heads back toward respectability. They're 1-0 after beating Jackson State 88-62 last Friday, a win that prompted Mac Engel of the Star-Telegram to call freshman power forward Amric Fields (picture above) "TCU's next NBA player". And while beating Jackson State, a team out of the SWAC, doesn't make this a bunch of world-beaters, do consider that Jackson State returned basically their whole roster from an NIT berth a year ago- so beating them that soundly doesn't exactly mean nothing, either.

Anywho, whatever I'm trying to say about the buzz about this year's basketball team, David Peterson of HornedFrogSports.com says much better HERE.
