Christian didn’t waver when Frogs hit rock bottom

March Madness is at its pinnacle 8212; eighth-seeded Butler and No. 11 seed Virginia Commonwealth represent half of the remaining teams in the NCAA tournament. TCU's basketball season ended 19 days ago 8212; at least one day longer than many expected.

For anyone who sat through the Frogs' 13-game losing streak, which started Jan. 15 and without the Frogs' third-leading scorer Sammy Yeager, it was evident by the fourth loss in a row the streak could be lengthy after the indefinite suspension of TCU leading scorer Ronnie Moss.

Frogs travel to UNT Tuesday for make-up match

The women's tennis team should have wrapped up its nonconference slate last week against UT-Arlington. Instead, TCU (5-6) will travel up I-35 to face North Texas (6-9) at 2 p.m. today to finish a match postponed Jan. 29 at the ITA Kickoff Weekend in Berkeley, Calif., due to inclement weather.

The Frogs enter the day riding a three-match winning streak after defeating UTA 5-2 on Wednesday. The victory gave TCU a 4-1 record against in-state opponents.

The Mean Green also enter the match as winners of three straight after defeating Northwestern State 5-2.

Frogs face lack of experience on secondary

After finishing the 2010-11 season with its first BCS bowl win and ranked No. 2 in the final BCS poll, TCU faces the task of replacing five defensive starters.

For the past three years, TCU has had the best statistical defense in FBS football and has finished first in total defense an unprecedented five times under head football coach Gary Patterson 8212; more than any other program since NCAA started tracking statistics in 1937. Only Toledo (1969-71) and Oklahoma (1985-87) have also finished first in total defense three consecutive seasons.
