It’s Officially TCU Basketball Season
October 25, 2018
Hello from Kansas City and Big 12 Men’s Basketball Media Day! It’s officially basketball season when we make the trip up to the Sprint Center for this annual pre-season run through the gauntlet. Head Coach Jamie Dixon along with guard Alex Robinson and forward J.D. Miller are here to meet with national media.
Bob Bowlsby, Big 12 commissioner, announced that the conference championship will remain in KC through 2024 and that’s a good thing. If you haven’t been up here for the Big 12 Tournament, you need to get here. It’s a party and KC does it right. Also, Bowlsby announced the Big 12-Big East Challenge, which will begin next year.
Before we get too far here today, I want to wish my dad, Joe. D. Denton, a happy birthday. On Tuesday he turned 94 and he’s still as sharp as ever. He sees everything and is on top of things as the leader of the Denton clan. He also got a call on Tuesday from Coach Gary Patterson wishing him a happy birthday. Enough said.
My dad taught this: “Whatever you do reflects on the entire family and affects all in the family.”
Wise and especially appropriate words given the events of the week that have left TCU fans hurting and scratching their heads. Big Joe also taught me to keep swinging, work hard and good things will happen. As the Frogs prepare for KU this weekend, it’s back to the hard work.
We’ll take a look at Kansas on Friday. I gotta go, Bob Huggins is waiting and I don’t want to miss a chance to talk with the WVU coach – ALWAYS entertaining.
