FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU has named women's golf senior Brooke Beeler and men's basketball senior J.R. Cadot as its Athletes of the Week for their recent performances.
Last weekend, Beeler finished in a tie for fourth overall out of 81 players at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, S.C., with an even-par 142. The tournament was shortened to 36 holes after Saturday's action was postponed due to continuous lightning. As a team, TCU placed seventh in a field that had 12 of 15 participating schools in the top-50.
Beeler and TCU hit the course again this weekend at the LSU Tiger Golf Classic in Baton Rouge, La.
In front of a raucous crowd in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum Saturday, the Horned Frogs nearly came up with a victory before falling 98-92 in overtime to No. 21 San Diego State. TCU trailed by as much as 18 in the second half before regaining the lead, thanks to Cadot. The Nassau, Bahamas, native sent a nice farewell to the home fans on Senior Night, scoring 21 of his career-high 24 points in the second half and grabbing eight rebounds. Fourteen of those points came in a 32-14 Frogs run that tied the game at 77-77 with 5:50 remaining.
Cadot and the Frogs will begin the Mountain West Championships against Colorado State Thursday at 4:30 p.m. CST.
