Game #16 Jan. 17, 2007 TCU (10-5, 2-1) vs. Colorado State (12-4, 2-2)
7 p.m. (CT) Daniel-Meyer Coliseum Fort Worth, Texas
The Horned Frogs have won three of their last four and six of their past eight contests.
It's the Frogs' hottest eight-game stretch since winning seven of eight games from Dec. 21, 2004 through Jan. 19, 2005.
Sights Set on 3-1
The Horned Frogs are looking to move to 3-1 in conference play for just the third time in the past eight seasons. The Frogs also had 3-1 starts in the Western Athletic Conference in 2001 and in Conference USA in 2005.
Back at Home Feels Nice
After a two-game road swing to Utah and BYU, the Horned Frogs returned to Fort Worth last Thursday afternoon.
The Frogs spent part of eight of the first 11 days of the calendar year in the state of Utah.
TCU is in the third game of a six-game stretch featuring four road tilts.
Tough Early Slate
Entering this year, TCU had an all-time combined record of 7-20 (.259) against New Mexico, Utah and BYU. However, the Horned Frogs won two of the three games.
Colorado State is the first MWC opponent this year that TCU has a winning record against all time (6-3).
The Horned Frogs Against the Rams
TCU leads the all-time series 6 games to 3, but has lost two consecutive contests.
The teams met three times last year, with Colorado State taking two of the three clashes. Each team held serve on its home court by double-figure margins, and the Rams edged TCU, 64-60, in the opening round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament.
Juniors in Class Only
Four of TCU's top five scorers are members of the Horned Frogs' junior class.
The quintet of Brent Hackett, Alvardo Parker, Ryan Wall and Neiman Owens has scored 508 of the team's 953 points this season (53 percent).
The freshman, sophomore and junior classes have combined to contribute 777 of the team's 888 points (87.5 percent).
