TCU: The Facts

Located in Fort Worth, Texas, with an enrollment of 9,518, TCU is 10-16 on the season and 1-12 in its first season of Big 12 competition. The Horned Frogs are looking to end a four-game losing streak, which included a 68-59 loss to Texas Tuesday. The Horned Frogs are coached by Trent Johnson who is 10-16 in his first season at TCU and 236-201 in his 14th season overall. TCU is 8-8 at home, 1-7 in road games, 1-1 on neutral courts this season and has a -6.5 scoring margin. TCU ranks third in the Big 12 in scoring defense, allowing 60.6 points per game.

Kansas vs. TCU: The Series

Kansas head coach Bill Self is 8-4 all-time against TCU, including 2-1 while at Kansas. TCU head coach Trent Johnson is 2-0 against Kansas. In Self's first season at Kansas, Johnson's Stanford team defeated KU 64-58 on Dec. 6, 2003, in Anaheim, Calif., in the Wooden Classic.
