FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — JD Miller certainly wasn't the first option for TCU on the final play. He still made the game-winning shot.
Miller hit a short running fadeaway jumper in the final second and the Horned Frogs beat Oklahoma State 70-68 after blowing a 13-point lead in the second half.
"To be truly honest, that play was not supposed to go to me," said Miller, 2-of-11 shooting before his winning shot. "It worked out great."
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU never trailed after Kouat Noi scored the game's first seven points. When Florida got even in the second half after a horrendous start and bad shooting day all around, the lanky forward for the Horned Frogs put them ahead to stay.
Noi finished with 22 points, outscoring the Gators all by himself for most of the first half, and TCU held on to win 55-50 in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Saturday.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU junior point guard Jaylen Fisher will miss the rest of this season because of ongoing issues with his surgically repaired right knee and he will not return to the program next season.
"Obviously we haven't had him for a while," coach Jamie Dixon said Thursday. "He's been in and out for really three years, so it's something we've always known was a possibility given the history and the number of surgeries."
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU appeared to easily be on its way to winning a Big 12 opener for the first time.
The Horned Frogs had a 19-point lead after halftime, the shots were coming easily and Baylor couldn't find a way to put together a run.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jaylen Fisher scored 14 points and helped TCU outshoot the nation's most accurate 3-point shooting team in a 90-70 win over Indiana State on Sunday.
Indiana State entered the game tops in the nation in 3-point percentage, at 48.2 percent. But the Sycamores missed nine of their first 11 from 3-point range and made just 19 percent for the game.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Robinson stood smiling at center court with the MVP plaque. Then he turned around and repeatedly urged his teammates over.
After all, it was hardly a one-man show when TCU drubbed Southern California 96-61 for its fourth straight victory at the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic tripleheader on Friday night.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — With nine newcomers and the first preseason ranking in 20 years, TCU figures to lean on holdovers Alex Robinson, Desmond Bane and JD Miller to try to live up to the billing early.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Maggie Dixon Classic will be played on the TCU campus where her brother is the men's coach.
TCU announced Friday that its women's home game Dec. 2 against Army has been designated the 13th annual Maggie Dixon Classic.
The classic honors Maggie Dixon, who died at 28 from heart arrhythmia in April 2006. Just weeks before, she led Army to its first women's NCAA Tournament.
Last season: 21-12, reached first NCAA Tournament since 1998.
Nickname: Horned Frogs.
Coach: Jamie Dixon.
Conference: Big 12.
Who's gone: Forward Kenrich Williams (NBA), forward Vladimir Brodziansky (pro league in Spain).
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — While TCU is excited about being in the preseason Top 25 for the first time in two decades, coach Jamie Dixon put into perspective what that No. 20 ranking really means to him.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — TCU coach Jamie Dixon has been stressing better defense to his players lately, and Tuesday night, that emphasis paid off.
Kenrich Williams scored 13 points and had nine rebounds and six assists, and Alex Robinson also scored 13 to help lead TCU to a 79-66 victory over Oklahoma State on Tuesday night.
Desmond Bane added 12 points, five assists and four rebounds for TCU (16-6, 4-5 Big 12), which had five players score in double digits.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — This was the kind of home-court celebration Jamie Dixon envisioned for TCU when he returned to his alma mater less than two years ago.
Students spilled onto the court, some even lifting Dixon into the air, after the Horned Frogs beat No. 7 West Virginia 82-73 on Monday night. Their first home win over a Top 10 team in nearly five years came on the same day they dropped out of the AP Top 25.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU point guard Jaylen Fisher had surgery Thursday to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season for the No. 24 Horned Frogs.
Fisher got hurt Tuesday, the second time in less than six months he injured a knee in practice. He had surgery after a meniscus tear in his left knee in early August.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU went into Big 12 play undefeated, with the nation's longest winning streak and its first top 10 ranking ever.
A tough start in conference play hasn't changed coach Jamie Dixon's outlook for his team. While the Horned Frogs have lost four of their five Big 12 games, the last two were in overtime on the road.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU's upset of Kansas last March in the Big 12 Tournament was quite a surprise then.
The Horned Frogs' only win ever over a No. 1-ranked team doesn't seem like such a fluke now.
Coach Jamie Dixon's team, which hosts the Jayhawks on Saturday night, has since won the NIT championship, had a school-record 17-game winning streak and reached the Top 10 for the first time ever.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — With its highest ranking ever and in its first home game in 20 seasons with both teams ranked, No. 10 TCU finally settled in after No. 12 Oklahoma opened the game with 11 straight points.
The Horned Frogs even went on to build a 13-point lead after halftime — and then let it all slip away at the end.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — For a half, winless Texas Southern refused to follow the script against undefeated No. 15 TCU. The Tigers just couldn't keep pace for a whole game.
Consecutive 3-pointers from TCU's Alex Robinson and Kenrich Williams sparked a second-half surge, giving the Horned Frogs (11-0) some breathing room on their way to a 91-72 win. The victory extended the nation's longest winning streak to 16 games dating to last season.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After dominating the first 30 minutes, TCU cooled off and Nevada came on strong.
The 20th-ranked Horned Frogs still had enough left to hang on for an 84-80 victory Friday night in the Hall of Fame Basketball Classic, extending the nation's best winning streak to 15 games.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Kenrich Williams was on a breakaway toward the TCU basket when he was suddenly caught from behind and essentially tackled.
That still couldn't stop the 20th-ranked Horned Frogs from extending the nation's longest winning streak to 14 games with a 94-83 victory over SMU on Tuesday night.
"It's just a part of the game. It was just a hard foul," Williams said. "Got us fired up. It probably helped us a little bit in a way."
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU coach Jamie Dixon still wants to figure out ways to get Desmond Bane more shots.
It's easy to see why since the sophomore guard is making nearly 75 percent of them for the season.
Bane scored 18 points, Jaylen Fisher had 17 points and seven assists and No. 23 TCU won its nation-leading 13th straight game, beating Yale 92-66 on Saturday night.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Rankings were part of the routine in the 13 seasons that TCU coach Jamie Dixon spent at Pittsburgh.
Now that his alma mater is in The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in almost three years in Dixon's second season, the idea will be to keep the Horned Frogs there.
Dixon thought his team handled its return to the rankings well.
NICEVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jaylen Fisher is still trying to get his groove back three weeks after returning to action after a pair of injuries, but he was feeling good enough to lead undefeated TCU to the Emerald Coast Classic championship.
Fisher scored 20 points and the Horned Frogs topped St. Bonaventure 89-79 in the title game Saturday night. The sophomore guard had been out for 18 weeks with hand and knee injuries before being cleared to play three weeks ago.
NICEVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Kenrich Williams led Texas Christian with 23 points Friday as the Horned Frogs advanced to the Emerald Coast Classic title game with a narrow 69-67 victory over New Mexico.
TCU (5-0) will face Maryland or St. Bonaventure for the championship Saturday at Northwest Florida State College.
Williams also led TCU with 17 rebounds. Desmond Bane added 11 points and Jaylen Fisher scored 10 for the Horned Frogs.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Maggie Dixon Classic will be played in Texas and include the women's team from TCU, where her brother Jamie Dixon is the men's coach.
TCU's game will be played at No. 19 Texas A&M on Dec. 6.
The event has been held annually since 2006 in honor of the late 28-year-old Army coach. Maggie Dixon died of an arrhythmia on April 6, 2006, just weeks after leading the Black Knights to their first NCAA Tournament.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Vladimir Brodziansky scored 23 points and had a key assist late as TCU held on for its eighth straight victory, 76-71 over South Dakota on Wednesday night.
The winning streak by the Horned Frogs (3-0) includes their postseason run to the NIT championship last March. They opened this season, coach Jamie Dixon's second at his alma mater, by winning three games in six days.
