Oct. 13, 2003
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU men's and women's basketball teams will host Late Night With the Frogs, an event to officially signal the start of the 2003-04 season, on Friday, Oct. 17, beginning at 9:00 p.m. Late Night, which is free to the public, will take place on the floor of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum on the TCU campus.
TCU's own Kristin Holt, who appeared on the first season of the American Idol television show, will emcee Late Night With the Frogs, which made its debut last year as Frog Madness. Horned Frog fans will have a chance to see the newcomers and returners for both teams, as the TCU men's and women's basketball players will perform a variety of skits and dance routines. In addition, head men's basketball coach Neil Dougherty and head women's basketball coach Jeff Mittie will be present.
Godfrey, a comedian best known for his appearances in the recent 7-Up commercials, will perform a PG-13 rated comedy show to kick off the event. In addition, fans will be treated to performances by the TCU showgirls, cheerleaders and SuperFrog. A student slam dunk contest is also slated. Fans seeking players autographs may do so following the event.
The first 200 fans in attendance will receive free T-shirts. Doors will open at 8:00 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Both teams begin play on Friday, Nov. 7, with exhibition games. The women will host Fenerbache at 5:15 p.m., followed by the men's game against Interhoop. Admission to every exhibition contest is free. For regular-season ticket information, call (817) 257-FROG.
