TCU Men’s Basketball had a rocky 2019-20 season. With a record of 7-11 in conference play and 16-16 record overall, The horned frogs are looking to bounce back. Despite being the 7th ranked team in the Big 12. TCU proved to be formidable opponents. Many of TCU’s losses were so close, they could have gone either way, both in the preseason and regular season play. Although with a new season on the horizon, it’s a perfect chance for TCU to jump in rankings. The 2020-21 season is looking to be a promising one for TCU to make a comeback.
To start, TCU landed former 5-star USC transfer, Charles O’Bannon Jr., to their roster. Despite using his sophomore season as a redshirt season due to injury, his previous season showed him to be a tough player. The 2017-18 season saw him play in 14 games for USC. The former 5-star recruit was also ranked as the number 28 prospect on the ESPN Top 100 list and the number 6 small forward in the 2017 class. TCU having committed O’Bannon Jr. will definitely help in TCU’s campaign to climb the ranks of the Big 12. In addition, the new incoming freshmen in Terren Frank, Mike Miles, and Eddie Lampkin will also provide extra assistance in TCU bouncing back next season.
As far as the actual season and who TCU plays, It’s currently up in the air, namely for pre-conference play. Last season we played 12 teams in pre-conference play, walking away with a promising 9-3 record. During conference play, however, TCU finished the season with a record of 7-11. Many games were close, such as with Kansas State, Texas, and Oklahoma. However, 2020-21 is a new season and is sure to be a comeback for TCU. The Horned frogs will surely be a force to be reckoned with in the Big 12.
