Frogs Set to Host Consolation Round of Preseason NIT
Nov. 19, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU men's basketball program will play host to the 25th Annual Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off consolation round at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum this upcoming Monday and Tuesday.
The Horned Frogs - who entered the Preseason NIT as the seventh seed - was one of three sites chosen to host the consolation rounds. The Frogs posted an 83-65 victory over Cal State Northridge in the first round followed by a 53-49 setback to host-program Arizona State in the finals of the West Bracket.
This is the first time that TCU has ever hosted a Preseason NIT game as the Frogs welcome Texas State, Colgate and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Texas State and UW Milwaukee will open up play on Monday with game time slated for 5:30 p.m. while TCU and Colgate will play in the nightcap beginning at 8:00 p.m. The Frogs and Raiders met last season where TCU recorded a 62-37 victory at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
On Tuesday, Colgate and UW Milwaukee will play the first game beginning at 5:30 p.m. while the Frogs and Bobcats close out the Preseason NIT with an 8:00 p.m. tip-off. This will be the first meeting between the Frogs and Bobcats since the 2005-06 campaign as TCU holds a 2-0 advantage in the series records.
TCU men's basketball season ticket holders will be guaranteed their same seats for both day of Preseason NIT action for $10 per day. Non-season ticket holders can purchase tickets for $15 for adults and $8 for youth (ages 3-17). All TCU students will be admitted free with a valid student ID.
