Arena: Daniel-Meyer Coliseum (7,201), opened 1961.
Greatest player: Kurt Thomas, 1991-95. Plagued by injuries his first two seasons, Thomas didn't become a starter until his junior year. But he became a star as a junior — then Billy Tubbs arrived as coach in 1994, and Thomas became just the third player ever to lead the NCAA in scoring (28.9) and rebounding (14.6).
Greatest coach: Jim Killingsworth. Hired away from OSU in 1979, the native Oklahoman coached the Frogs for eight seasons and went 130-106, including a 64-64 Southwest Conference record, during the SWC's glory years (Houston, Arkansas). Killer's final team beat Marshall in the 1987 NCAA Tournament before a one-point loss to Notre Dame.
Championships: Eight outright Southwest Conference titles, two co-SWC championships, and one WAC title.
Greatest team: 1998. Billy Tubbs' team went 27-6 overall, 14-0 in the Western Athletic Conference and received a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament before a first-round loss to Florida State in Oklahoma City.
Greatest win: On March 15, 1968, TCU beat Kansas State 77-72 in Wichita, Kan., in an NCAA Tournament first-round game. Mickey McCarty had 17 points and 15 rebounds for TCU. The Frogs have just two non-consolation NCAA victories.
NCAA Tournament record: 5-7, seven appearances.
Last 10 years: 18-15, 11-22, 13-19, 14-17, 14-16, 13-17, 6-25, 21-14, 12-17, 9-19.
