FORT WORTH -- TCU has announced that men's basketball's Amric Fields and women's basketball's Chelsea Prince are its Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week for their recent performances.

Fields, playing in his first home game in over a year and a half and first overall contest since late November, returned to action with authority. He recorded his first career double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds, with the latter being a career-high as well, in TCU's 77-64 win over Texas Southern on Sunday. It was also the Oklahoma City native's first start of the year. Fields, a junior, also thwarted a Tiger rally in the second half with a clutch three-point play.

The men will open Big 12 play on Saturday, hosting West Virginia for a 3 p.m. CST tip-off. The game will also air on the Big 12 Network.

Prince was instrumental in the women's win over Prairie View A&M on Saturday night. The Horned Frogs routed the Panthers 76-47. Her 15 points on 5-for-8 shooting were a season-high and one short of a career best from 2011. The Horned Frogs jumped out to a 20-point halftime lead and never looked back in improving to 8-0 at home this season.

Prince, a junior from Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, and TCU will begin Big 12 action Thursday night when No. 14 Iowa State comes to Fort Worth. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. CST.
