2014-15 SEASON OUTLOOK
Karviar Shepherd has a chance to push for all-league accolades during his sophomore season after having a solid freshman campaign. The Dallas product posted 13 double-figures games this past season and could have even a bigger impact on the TCU program during his second-year on campus after posting seven double-digit rebounding efforts in 2013-14.

2013-14 | FRESHMAN SEASON
Shepherd started 30 games in his debut campaign ... ranked fourth on the squad with an average of 9.1 points per game ... paced the team with an average of 6.8 boards per game... led TCU 15 times in rebounding ... pulled down 10 or more rebounds in seven games ... posted four double-doubles against UTPA (11 rebounds, 11 points), Oklahoma (11 rebounds, 12 points), Iowa State (15 rebounds, 14 points) and Oklahoma State (10 rebounds, 11 points) ... recorded 15 points, while playing every minute against Texas Tech ... scored double-digit points in seven of the last 10 games, which included a 19-point, seven board outing against Baylor at the Big 12 Championship ... with his 16 rebound performance at Mississippi State, Shepherd made some noise nationally as he posted the third-highest rebounding effort by a freshman in the NCAA during non-conference play ... the Dallas native's 16 boards were the top-rebounding effort by a Big 12 freshman since Baylor's Isaiah Austin grabbed 20 against Oklahoma ... in all, it was the fourth-highest rebounding mark in the Big 12 by a freshman since the 2009-10 season ... he closed out the year ranking fifth overall in blocked shots in the Big 12, while also finishing seventh in defensive rebounds for the season at 5.0 ... he also ranked No. 105 in blocked shots per game in the NCAA.

PREP CAREER
One of the nation's most sought-after prospects, Shepard is the highest-rated prospect to ever sign with TCU ... rated the No. 46 overall player for the Class of 2013 by Rivals.com and the No. 3 center ... the No. 48 overall player according to both ESPN and Scout.com ... awarded four stars by both Rivals and Scout ... listed as the No. 7 overall player in the state of Texas by ESPN ... was selected to compete at the 2012 National Basketball Players Association Top 100 Camp as one of the nation's premier recruits ... played his freshman and sophomore seasons at DeSoto High School and sat out his junior campaign at Arlington Grace Prep before transferring to Prime Prep ... played AAU ball for the Urban DFW Elite squad coached by Jazzy Hartwell ... was an AAU teammate of fellow TCU sophomore Brandon Parrish.
