TCU fulfills dream with 1st Big 12 win over Kansas
Question of the Day
“I said this from day one, we need to focus on what’s in the locker room,” Johnson said. “The easiest things for players to do is to check it in. The easiest thing for me to do is to do my job. Come out and coach every day, not worry about what we don’t have and continue to coach.”
Kansas didn’t score its first points against TCU until 7:17 into the game, then didn’t make another field goal for another 8 minutes.
The Jayhawks were only 3-of-22 shooting before halftime, when they trailed 22-13. They finished shooting 29.5 percent (18 of 61), their worst in 514 games since December 1998, and saw the end of their Division I-best streak of 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses.
“(The first half) was awful, but even as bad as it was, which it was horrendous, if we’re sound defensively and can get stops at the shot clock and things like that, we’re probably going to be down 4-6 (points), as opposed to nine,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “They played really good defense. Statistically, they’re good. But yeah, it was a bad shooting night.”
Fellow Big 12 newcomer West Virginia, which beat TCU 71-50 two weeks ago, makes its first visit to Fort Worth on Saturday. The Horned Frogs play Monday night at Oklahoma, the only league team they haven’t yet played.
“We’re going to do what we need to do to carry on this momentum,” Green said. “It was fun. But we have a game here pretty soon coming up so we have to get ready for this.”
And on Thursday, a day after arguably the biggest victory in TCU history and the midpoint of their Big 12 schedule, Johnson was out of town on a recruiting trip. He certainly had a new tale to tell.
