Long Sunday Afternoon Dump

Men's Basketball:

Frogs crumble late under turnovers, missed free throws

TCU drops 71-54 decision to New Mexico

The headline from the Star-Telegram says it all, really. Winning a conference game on the road is tough, but it's damn near impossible when you turn the ball over 17 times and miss 9 free throws. I don't know if any of us expected the Frogs to go into The Pit and win, but it only adds to the frustration when they clearly lost this game way more so than the Lobos won it. While Wednesday is a big day for the football program with the letters of intent coming through GP's fax machine, it's also a big day for the basketball team- a very winnable measuring-stick game against Wyoming takes place that night at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

Women's Basketball:

Improving TCU women win third straight in conference Star-Telegram

Lady Frogs take down New Mexico, 63-56

It's been a tough year for the TCU women's basketball team, as a nasty injury bug led to a lackluster start out of the gate . The young squad seems to be finding their stride, though, and are now 4-2 in conference play riding this three-game winning streak. Three of their next four games are on the road, though, which will provide a whole new slew of tests.
