The Future: Abron Returns After Sitting Out
April 23, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas - After sitting out this past season due to injury, junior Devonta Abron is eager to return to the court and produce for the Horned Frogs.
GoFrogs.com takes an inside look at what the Dallas product could bring to the Horned Frogs front court this next season in this week's edition of a closer look inside the TCU men's basketball program.
Abron had a successful first-year in TCU's program after transferring from Arkansas, seeing action in all 32 games with 15 starts as a sophomore. In all, he led the Horned Frogs in blocked shots and field-goal percentage, ranked No. 2 on the team in rebounding and was No. 4 in both scoring and steals.
Abron, who shot 53 percent from the field during his sophomore season in Fort Worth, finished the 2012-13 season tied for 11th in the Big 12 in rebounding, including No. 6 on the offensive end of the court. He led TCU six times in scoring and eight times in boards, while scoring in double figures 12 times. He pulled down five or more boards in 20 games, including three efforts of 10 or more.
The 6-foot-8 forward led TCU with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting in the 2013 Big 12 opener against Texas Tech, while also tallying a career-high four blocks against the Red Raiders. He came back to pour in a career-best 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting at No. 9 Kansas. Abron finished the season with his seventh double-rebound performance of his career with 11 boards to go with nine points during the Frogs opening round game against Texas at the 2013 Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship.
