The KU basketball team begins its quest for its 13th consecutive Big 12 Conference regular season title on the road at TCU.

The Kansas Jayhawks completed a successful non-conference schedule, winning 11 in a row after losing to Indiana the first game of the season in Hawaii.

The TCU Horned Frogs have also enjoyed early season success. They are 11-1 as well, including a perfect 9-0 at home. They do not have many impressive wins, however. Back-to-back wins against Washington are maybe the best wins thus far.

The Jayhawks need to notch that first road win in conference play to help them get off to the start they need in the Big 12. With Baylor looking daunting, Kansas can’t afford to lose to TCU.


  • Who: TCU Horned Frogs (11-1)
  • Where: Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena, Fort Worth, Texas
  • Tipoff Time: Thursday, December 30, 8:00 PM (Central time)
  • TV Channel: ESPN2
  • KU Basketball Live Stream: WatchESPN

The Jayhawks offer a different look this season. Other coaches around the Big 12 won’t be able to rely on what has worked against Kansas in past years.

Bill Self is using a four-guard set a majority of the time. Even with Landen Lucas and Carlton Bragg Jr. emerging slightly from their early season slumps, the loss of Udoka Azubuike isn’t going to curtail minutes for those guards.

Mitch Lightfoot has shown flashes of what he might be in the future, but he doesn’t look to be ready for prime time quite yet. Dwight Coleby must still be battling his knee because we have seen very little of him of late.

Let’s face it. The Jayhawks are down to seven players, with Lightfoot and eventually Coleby grabbing a few minutes here and there.

Kansas is going to have to rebound by committee and find a way to defend the post against stiff competition.

The guards have been fantastic for this KU basketball team. They have played a lot of minutes – the five of them average 29.2 minutes a game each – but have performed well so far. Can the Jayhawks survive the grueling conference schedule with just two big men playing many minutes?

It should be an interesting two months in the Big 12!
