    A week removed from its last-second loss to Longwood, TCU men’s basketball returns to the court Tuesday against the Abilene Christian Wildcats.

    After losses to SMU and Longwood, TCU (0-2) is off to a rocky start in its second year under head coach Trent Johnson. Those struggles are in large part due to a plague of injuries that has confined four Frogs to the bench.

    Forwards Devonta Abron and Aaron Durley were lost for the year in the preseason with a torn Achilles and ACL respectively, and freshman Hudson Price and junior Amric Fields are still hampered by injury but will return later this season.

    Because of the slew of injuries, senior wing Jarvis Ray has had to fill in on the front line next to freshman Karviar Shepherd. Both players have dealt with foul trouble so far, as the two players have tallied 18 total fouls through two games. Ray has fouled out of both games so far this year.

    Junior point guard Kyan Anderson and freshman guard Brandon Parrish have led the Frogs offense through its first two games so far, both averaging 13 points per game.

    ACU (0-4) has been led in scoring so far this year by junior guard Harrison Hawkins at 12.8 points per game.

    Tip-off is at 7 p.m. at the Daniel Meyer Coliseum.
