Fields, playing in his first game since suffering an injury Nov. 15 of last season, carried the Horned Frogs to a dramatic 64-62 win at Washington State. He made an immediate impact upon entering the game, scoring seven points in a 14-0 run. He then blocked a shot with two seconds left to preserve the victory. The junior from Oklahoma City ended the game with 16 points and a career-high seven rebounds. He was 7-of-9 from the field and made two of his three shots from behind the arc.
TCU will continue its trip north to Alaska, where it takes on Alaska-Anchorage on Thanksgiving morning at 1 a.m. CST for the first round of the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaskan Shootout. The Horned Frogs' opponents on Friday and Saturday are to be determined.
Gibson had a week for the record books in College Station at the Art Adamson Invitational. She got off on the right foot with three other Horned Frogs in the 400-yard medley relay on the first day, recording the fourth-fastest time in TCU history (3:46.69) alongside Julie Grace Sanders, Gabi Korac and Hannelore Strash. The next day, Gibson broke the TCU standard for the 100-yard backstroke with a 54.92 clip. On the third day, the sophomore from Southlake yet again set a new school record, this time with a 1:58.76 time in the 200-yard backstroke.
The Horned Frogs will return to action after finals week, when they travel to Jenks, Okla., to battle Missouri State on Dec. 14 and 15.
