ON THE DOCKET
We have a great week of home events to keep you quite occupied on campus. Women’s basketball has home games tonight versus Oklahoma State and Saturday against West Virginia. Both contests will tip at 7. If coming either night or both evenings, please remember to support our Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) and its Teddy Bear Drive. As you enter Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, our SAAC members will be collecting teddy bears to donate to Cook Children’s Hospital.
Baseball will make its 2013 home debut with a three-game series versus Cal State Fullerton. First pitch is at 6:30 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. Women’s tennis, fresh off an impressive win over No. 17 Vanderbilt, hosts Arizona on Friday at 1 p.m. We also have a home equestrian contest on Sunday at 10 a.m. against Oklahoma State. Men’s basketball will be at Kansas on Saturday, track and field heads to the Big 12 Indoor Championships in Ames, Iowa, while our 13th-ranked men’s golf program is competing in a pair of tournaments in California.
MEET THE STAFF
After serving as our women’s basketball program’s video coordinator last season, Jayci Stone is now its director of operations. She assists head coach Jeff Mittie and staff with team travel, academics, community outreach, NCAA compliance, video and other administrative responsibilities. A 2008 Kansas State graduate, Jayci came to TCU after coaching stops at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College and the University of Alaska-Anchorage. While playing at UAA, Jayci broke the program's single-season record for 3-point field goals made (76). She also set school and conference single-game marks for 3-pointers made (8).
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
I’m sure many of you remember Allen Tolley as a four-year letterman at guard for our men’s basketball program from 1990-93. He still ranks among our program leaders in career starts. Allen was team captain and most valuable player his senior year when he led us to an upset victory over top-seed SMU in the Southwest Conference Tournament. As a sophomore, he was instrumental in leading us to the NIT. After graduation, Allen remained in Fort Worth and became head boys basketball coach at Fort Worth Country Day School. He is now a teacher in the Fort Worth ISD and also a certified UIL basketball and volleyball referee for the Fort Worth chapter of officials. Allen and his wife, Veronica, a 1995 TCU graduate, have two children: Trey and Alicia.
SPANNING THE GLOBE
This week’s edition of TCU supporters flashing the Horned Frog sign and apparel from all points worldwide comes from our good friend and recent volleyball standout Megan Munce. We see Megan earlier this week during a walk from Switzerland to Germany, in front of the Rhine River that separates Stein-Sackingen (Switzerland) and Bad Sackingen (Germany). Please continue to send me (email@example.com) your images. These are fun to share.
NAME THE MOVIE QUOTE
Last Week's Answer: Nobody but Forrest Gump could have said, "Now you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was running!"
This Week's Quote: "Real tomato ketchup, Eddie?” Check back next week for the answer on which movie this line is from.
Student-athletes are permitted to participate in promotional activities for TCU, our conference, or a non-institutional charitable, educational or non-profit organization. This includes allowing those entities to use the student-athlete’s name, picture or appearance to support charitable or educational activities provided certain criteria are met. If an organization is interested in having a student-athlete make a promotional appearance, they may submit the request to the TCU Compliance Office through the compliance page on GoFrogs.com at the following link: http://gofrogs.cstv.com/ot/promo-appearance-form.html. The Compliance Office will review all requests to ensure the student-athlete’s appearance or promotion satisfies NCAA legislation.
