Yesterday proved that the impossible certainly is attainable. No one gave TCU a chance against the number one team in the land but they were somehow able to pull it off. Don’t let the #8 ranking on TCU fool you. They came into this game with an RPI ranking of 78th. Kansas led by as much as 12 at one point. It basically came down to TCU being far deeper in their roster than Kansas was able to get. Kansas got a total of 3 points from their bench while TCU was able to grab 34 points from their bench who ended up being crucial as their squad was in foul trouble early and often.
After the game, Alex Robinson was talking about how it feels to upset the number one team in the nation. He also talks about having to overcome the large Jayhawk contingency crowd.
Today the Horned Frogs will be taking on Iowa State who they split the series 1-1 in the regular season. The series deciding game will determine who will end up playing for the Big 12 Championship and have an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. TCU will more than likely need to win the Big 12 tournament in order to have a chance at the NCAA Tournament. Otherwise my guess is they will be looking at an NIT tournament bid.
