PLAYERS: Garlon Green
TEAMS: TCU Horned Frogs
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Basketball Writer TCU senior Garlon Green had dreamed of a victory over Kansas. His dream came true in a most unexpected way. The Horned Frogs hadn't won a Big 12 game since moving to their new league before their stunning 62-55 victory over the fifth-ranked Jayhawks on Wednesday night. TCU (10-12, 1-8 Big 12) never trailed and built as much as a 16-point lead, the largest deficit of the season for Kansas. Green says the Frogs, who have lost three key players to season-ending injuries, put their heart and soul into every game and every practice. They got rewarded with maybe the biggest upset in college basketball this season. Green says it was fun, but that the Frogs now have to build on that momentum. They host West Virginia on Saturday.

TCU fulfills dream with 1st Big 12 win

Garlon Green dreamed of a victory over Kansas long before he played for TCU. It's hard to think that the Horned Frogs senior forward or anyone else could have ever imagined his dream being fulfilled like this. The fifth-ranked Jayhawks certainly didn't. Big 12 newcomer TCU was still looking for its first conference victory and there were some who wondered if the Frogs,...

TCU players skipped classes and had their cars towed after beating Kansas

Bill Self called it the worst loss in Kansas Jayhawks history, and conversely  it was the biggest win in TCU Horned Frog history. Look, there is no history for TCU basketball, at least nothing of significance. They were losers of 8 straight, all in conference, before their shocking win over #5 Kansas. They rank 345th in the country in points per game. They are a bad basketball...

Did You Hear About That TCU-Kansas Game?

This had to be one of those games that while even though their team was not playing well, since they were playing better than the No. 5 team in the nation fans of the TCU Horned Frogs had to be happy (at least a little bit). The game itself wasn't a barn burner. It took about 3 1/2 minutes for the first points to be scored and over seven before Kansas ever got on the board...
