TCU makes AP Top Ten for first time in school history

Jamie Dixon and the TCU Horned Frog basketball team made history on Christmas Day.

No, they didn’t record a record number of wins, but the AP ranked the Horned Frogs tenth in the nation, their highest placement in school history.

The Horned Frogs are tied for 12th in the nation in scoring offense, and are undefeated on the season. The arrival of Jamie Dixon and their massive win in the NIT Tournament in 2017 have been a springboard for the Horned Frogs, who have transformed a bad team into a very, very good one seemingly overnight.

The mettle of that team will be tested in Big 12 play, however. The Big 12 is the best conference in the nation, and their round robin is widely considered one of the toughest around. There’s a chance that TCU basketball could still come out on top, but it won’t be an easy route at all.
