  1. Blair Henley will be on the mound for the Longhorns on Saturday night. He's an Arlington Heights grad, and threw three consecutive no-hitters for the Yellow Jackets in 2016.
  2. Despite finishing the year with a 14-20 record, West Virginia accepted an invitation to the CBI. They won their first round game, 77-63, over the logo thieves from Grand Canyon University, LLC. Next up, they face Coastal Carolina in the quarterfinals.
  3. Baseball America's first pass at a tournament projection has the Frogs as a 3-seed playing in Athens, GA along with Clemson, Samford and the host Bulldogs: LINK
  4. When does our fencing team play Dartmouth?
  5. Headlines from tonight's win over Sam Houston: -Alex Robinson broke the TCU single-season record for assists. He now holds the school single-game, single-season and career records in that department. With 659 for his career, he's now 10 away from passing Kirk Hinrich of Kansas for #4 in Big 12 history. -JD Miller played in his 137th career game, breaking the school record previously held by Brandon Parrish. -Kevin Samuel passed Kurt Thomas' 1993-94 season with with 70th block, which now puts him at #4 on the TCU single-season list. He needs 5 to pass Derrick Davenport's 2000-01 season for #3, and 9 to pass Damion Walker and crack the career top 10 list...as a freshman! -Desmond Bane passed the 1,200-point mark for his career. At 1,206, he needs 221 to pass Gary Turner and crack the career top 10 list. He also hit his 150th career three-pointer, so he needs 11 to pass Junior Blount to crack the top 10 on that career list.
  6. Singles victories by Rybakov, Stalder and Gray give the Frogs a 4-1 win! That's 8 wins in a row to improve to 13-3 on the year.
  7. Fellow #1 seed Alabama upset by Norfolk State (UT is the #2 seed in that bracket), and Georgetown upset by Harvard.
  8. Frogs get the doubles point vs. Columbia!
  9. This team's pitching depth really concerns me. To have any chance of being competitive in May/June, we'll need Janczak to come back healthy, Coughlin and Mihlbauer to rebound back to form AND have some of the relatively little-used arms (Arrighetti/Brown/Barr/Notary/Rudis) step up into a more reliable role. I haven't seen Dion Henderson or Asher Cook pitch yet this year - do we know anything about their health?
  10. Lady Frogs will host Prairie View A&M on Thursday in the first round of the WNIT. Winner gets the winner of UTA vs. SFA. WNIT bracket
  11. Dirk Nowitzki just passed Wilt Chamberlain for 6th place on the NBA all-time scoring list 😁 ...with a jump shot over Kenrich Williams 😯
  12. The women's bracket was (possibly) leaked earlier today on ESPN by accident. If the unintentionally leaked bracket is accurate, the Lady Frogs have also missed the cut.
  13. Two years ago, the NIT felt like an exciting step forward. Today, it feels like a bitter disappointment. This team really struggled with a lack of warm bodies at the end of the year. Would've been nice not to have so many players flat-out quit on their teammates halfway through the year.
  14. Even after Oregon's win over Washington, Lunardi still has us in the field. This feels like a coin toss, and what could ever go wrong leaving our fate in the hands of a selection committee?
  15. Prairie View A&M punched their ticket to the dance earlier today - their first since 1998. Abilene Christian is looking for their first-ever trip to the Divison I tournament. They're up big in the first half of the Southland Championship game against New Orleans right now. UTA plays Georgia State for the Sun Belt title tomorrow, and U of H looks to win the Nuevo CUSA tournament tomorrow against Cincinnati.
  16. Thank you, Cyclones! Iowa State, seeded 5th, takes down Kansas 78-66 to win the Big 12 tournament championship. This is much-needed good news for the Frogs' resume.
  17. Cron has been optioned to Triple-A Reno by the D'Backs. I was hoping he'd make the squad out of spring training, but be playing for his Dad in Reno and I'd expect to see him get The Call at some point in 2019.
  18. Lunardi's bracketology from Saturday morning has the Frogs as the very last team in the field. At this point, I feel like it's a coin toss - and I'm mentally preparing myself for a let down. A few games to watch today include the SEC semifinal between Florida & Auburn (Tigers lead by 2 with 8:41 to play - Go Gators!) and the Big 12 final this afternoon between Iowa State and Kansas (Go Cyclones!)
  19. Lodolo is part of the Barksdale Crew this year, because he's been straight DEALIN'
  20. Full uppdate after bowing out of the conference tourney. So going into whatever postseason play we see: Alex Robinson: Current career assists: 647 (TCU school record , #5 all-time in the Big 12) -Needs 21 to pass Kirk Hinrich of Kansas for #4 -Needs 121 to pass Monte Morris of Iowa State for #3 Current season-total assists: 230 (PASSED Hank Thorns '11, Prince Fowler '99 and his own '17 season; now #2 on the school single-season list) ...needs 5 to break Tony Edmond's school record of 234 from 1990. Current career steals: 143 (#4 all-time) -Needs 13 to pass Corey Santee for #3 -Needs 21 to pass Mike Jones for #2 ...needs 26 to break Kyan Anderson's school record Kevin Samuel: Current season total blocks: 67 (TCU freshman record, PASSED Kurt Thomas '95, now #5 on the school single-season list) -Needs 3 to pass Kurt Thomas '94 for #4 -Needs 8 to pass Derrick Davenport '01 for #3 ...needs 12 to pass Damion Walker to crack the career Top 10 in blocks Current season total rebounds: 231 (#2 on the freshman single-season list) -Needs 34 to break Damion Walker's fresman single-season record from 1996 Current season total points: 248 -Needs 35 to pass Jeff Jacobs '94 and crack the Top 10 on the fresman single-season list
  21. Quick update after the OSU win in Kansas City: -Alex Robinson passed Tech's John Roberson, is now #5 all-time on the Big 12 assist list -He needs 12 to break Tony Edmond's school single-season record. He's #5 on that list, too, and very close to #'s 4, 3 & 2
  22. The way I read the tea leaves puts us in this position going into the conference tournament: -Lose to OSU: out of the dance -Beat OSU: status quo, stay on the "good" side of the bubble and a better than 50% chance we're in -Beat OSU, beat KSU: ticket punched for sure, probably avoiding the play-in games too
  23. Jerry Palm at CBS has the Frogs as a 10-seed playing Auburn in his latest projection. Whoever does the projections for The Athletic has the Frogs as an 11-seed playing Buffalo.
  24. Joe Lunardi has the Frogs back in the field in his Monday morning bracketology - as one of the "last four in" and a #12 seed, playing Clemson in one of the "First Four" games in Dayton. Winner would get 'Bama in San Jose. Meanwhile, the Lady Frogs are project as the very first team out of the field in the women's bracketology that came out this morning.
