Men's basketball gears up for second exhibition tomorrow night
Nov. 10, 2005
FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU men's basketball head coach Neil Dougherty will be standing at opposite sides when his alma mater Cameron University rolls into town tomorrow night for a 7:05 p.m. exhibition with the Horned Frogs in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Dougherty played point guard in his final two collegiate years at Cameron, but will be pacing the TCU sideline when he faces the Aggies.
"I'm looking forward to the game tomorrow," coach Dougherty said. "This will be a chance to see old friends."
TCU is fresh off an 87-66 win last Saturday when the Frogs hosted the University of Calgary in their first exhibition contest of the 2005-06 season. Four Horned Frogs scored in double digits with Nile Murry leading all players in the game with 20 points.
In addition, two of the players each collected a double-double as Judson Stubbs racked up 11 points and 10 rebounds while Neiman Owens tallied 17 points and also 10 boards. Brent Hackett was the fourth Frog in double figures with 12 points.
Playing in its first and only exhibition game of the season, Cameron returns seven players from last year's squad that climbed as high as fifth in the NCAA Division II South Central regional rankings. Under head coach Garrette Mantle, who is in his seventh season at the helm of the program, the Aggies posted a 15-12 overall record for their first winning season since 1998.
Tomorrow's nightcap will be the final tune-up for the Frogs before the 2005-06 regular season begins Nov. 19.
