Horned Frogs to Host NIT Consolation Round
tcu logo2
My daughter graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos (near Austin). I will be sitting in my aisle season ticket seat, 3 rows behind the TCU bench in Fort Worth for all four games.

Frogs vs Bobcats will be the final game on Tuesday night. Will be wearing gear for BOTH teams. My money & my daughter went to Division I Texas State University but neither she nor I ever attended a sporting event in San Marcos. TCU will be the favorite to win (betting line) for sure. Looks like I will be politically correct for once in my life and support both teams. As a graduate of NCAA Division II Armstrong Atlantic State University, I don't ever have a conflict with TCU.

The TCU men's basketball program will play host to the 25th Annual Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off consolation round at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum this upcoming Monday and Tuesday.
The Horned Frogs - who entered the Preseason NIT as the seventh seed - was one of three sites chosen to host the consolation rounds. The Frogs posted an 83-65 victory over Cal State Northridge in the first round followed by a 53-49 setback to host-program Arizona State in the finals of the West Bracket.

This is the first time that TCU has ever hosted a Preseason NIT game as the Frogs welcome Texas State, Colgate and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Texas State and UW Milwaukee will open up play on Monday with game time slated for 5:30 p.m. while TCU and Colgate will play in the nightcap beginning at 8:00 p.m. The Frogs and Raiders met last season where TCU recorded a 62-37 victory at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

On Tuesday, Colgate and UW Milwaukee will play the first game beginning at 5:30 p.m. while the Frogs and Bobcats close out the Preseason NIT with an 8:00 p.m. tip-off. This will be the first meeting between the Frogs and Bobcats since the 2005-06 campaign as TCU holds a 2-0 advantage in the series records.

TCU men's basketball season ticket holders will be guaranteed their same seats for both day of Preseason NIT action for $10 per day. Non-season ticket holders can purchase tickets for $15 for adults and $8 for youth (ages 3-17). All TCU students will be admitted free with a valid student ID.

You'll enjoy UWM's James Eayrs

For two games you'll get to watch forward James Eayrs, who is UWM's best entertainer this year. He combines strong inside moves and fast hands with a very quick three-point shot. And considering he has slimmed down to 310 this year (he started at 340 last season), in Milwaukee we're hoping for an even better season for him in 09-10. Enjoy!

Re: You'll enjoy UWM's James Eayrs

You were 100% correct about this dude. First game he nailed 4 3's in like 5 mintues. UWM won both game and was very entertaining. TCU won both their games too, but it took 3 OT's to take down my daughter's alma mater, Texas State.
