TCU Men's Hoops 2-0

Kyan Anderson Mountain West Basketball Tournament - Quarterfinals

Admittedly I'm not a big TCU basketball follower, and wins over Cal Poly 53-46 and something called Centenary College 75-47 don't exactly have me jumping for joy yet, but 2-0 is 2-0.  Early on the offense has been paced by speedy PG Kyan Anderson (11.5 ppg) as well as lanky forward Amric Fields (11 ppg).  Anderson also leads the team in assists and steals, and he's one of the quicker guards I've seen at TCU, including the recently departed Hank Thorns Jr.  Next up for the Frogs is the SMU Ponies and the more famous new head coach in the Metroplex, Larry Brown.  It's tomorrow night at 7 in the DMC, so head over and check them out and support what hopefully is a basketball team heading in the right direction under new head coach Trent Johnson.  

Johnson also is in the midst of signing one of the top recruiting classes we've seen at TCU in quite a while with the signings of 3 players today, 4 star Center Karviar Shepherd from Dallas Prime Prep, 3 star SG Brandon Parish from Arlington Seguin, and PG Michael Williams from SA Reagan.
