Exposure: Pebley's TCU Introduction | FrogVision Feature

Raegan Pebley is in her fourth season as TCU women's basketball head coach in 2017-18, leading the Frogs to two postseason appearances in her first three seasons.

Pebley, (pronounced Pee-blee), entered her first year in Fort Worth having led teams to four-straight postseason appearances, and extended that impressive streak to six appearances, as the Horned Frogs earned the Big 12's automatic berth into the WNIT in each of her first two seasons.

In 2014-15, TCU notched a victory in postseason play for the first time in seven years as it advanced to the WNIT Second Round, then outdid itself in 2015-16 with a trip to the WNIT Third Round.

The Horned Frogs notched 18 wins in each of Pebley's first two seasons, including a program-best nine Big 12 victories in 2014-15 when they earned the No. 3 seed at the Big 12 Championship, surpassing the previous best regular season finish of seventh.

The Frogs have found the success behind Pebley's uptempo offense and aggressive defense. Offensively, the Frogs join Baylor and Texas as the only teams in the Big 12 to average over 71.0 points per game over the last two seasons. TCU finished the 2015-16 season second in the Big 12 in scoring at 72.2 points per game, that after finishing third in 2014-15.

Defensively, TCU has ranked second or third in the Big 12 in steals in each of Pebley's three seasons, the only team in the Big 12 to rank in the top three in each of the last three seasons.

Individually, numerous players have flourished in Pebley's system, perhaps none more than TCU's all-time leading scorer, Zahna Medley. Medley earned three All-Big 12 First Team honors in her career, two under Pebley, and was the first three-time all-conference first team selection in program history.

Medley finished her career with TCU bests of 1,975 career points, a 15.6 points per game scoring average and 316 made 3-pointers. She finished second in TCU history with 633 made field goals and 510 assists.

Medley's two selections are part of seven All-Big 12 selections for the Frogs in Pebley's two seasons. Veja Hamilton earned second team honors in 2014-15 while Chelsea Prince and AJ Alix earned three honorable mention picks between them.

Additionally, Prince was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2014-15, marking the fourth-straight such selection under Pebley.

Off the court, the Frogs have seen incredible success under Pebley. In her first three seasons, TCU student-athletes have earned 14 Academic All-Big 12 honors, that after earning just four in the two years prior to Pebley's arrival.

Included in the 14 selections is a record three first team selections in 2016-17. Jada Butts was one of the 2016-17 first team selections and became the first Frog to earn Academic All-Big 12 honors in four straight years.

TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Chris Del Conte officially announced the hiring of Pebley as the program's seventh head coach on April 1, 2014.

Pebley, regarded as one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the country, came to TCU after spending the previous two seasons at Fresno State, where she led the Bulldogs to Mountain West tournament titles and berths into the NCAA Tournament in each of her two seasons. Fresno State compiled a 46-20 (.697) overall record under the direction of Pebley, including a 26-8 (.765) mark in league play, while four Bulldogs earned All-Mountain West honors, including back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year selections.

Pebley's Fresno State squads featured one of the top defensive units in the country, as the 2012-13 Bulldogs ranked third in the NCAA in steals with 12.9 per game, doing so while only fouling 12.1 times per game to rank No. 7 nationally for the fewest fouls committed per game. The Bulldogs allowed a paltry 62.4 points per contest in the two seasons under Pebley.

The Orem, Utah, native faced a tall task in her first head coaching position, starting the Utah State women's basketball program after its reinstatement in 2003 following a 25-year hiatus. Pebley led the Aggies for nine seasons, building the program from scratch into back-to-back WNIT berths, marking the first postseason appearances in school history.

Pebley garnered WAC Coach of the Year accolades for the 2010-11 season after the Aggies advanced to their first WNIT, where they toppled Arizona, and was a WBCA National Coach of the Year finalist in 2012 after Utah State registered its first-ever 20-win season and returned to the WNIT.

In her nine seasons at Utah State, 12 Aggies earned all-conference honors, including Ashlee Brown, who was named the WAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, the first of four straight student-athletes to earn the league's top defensive awards under Pebley. Before taking over the Utah State program, Pebley served as an assistant coach at George Mason from 1997-99 under Jim Lewis and Debbie Taneyhill and at Colorado State from 1999-01 under Tom Collen.

At CSU, the Rams went 48-17 in her two seasons with the team reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2001 and the semifinals of the WNIT in 2000.

A standout at the University of Colorado, Pebley was selected with the 21st overall pick of the inaugural WNBA Draft in 1997, where she played two seasons with the Cleveland Rockers and Utah Starzz. She has since returned to a role within the league as she regularly serves as the color analyst on television broadcasts for the Dallas Wings.

During her collegiate career at Colorado, Pebley helped lead the Buffs to a 106-24 overall record and four conference championships, including winning the inaugural Big 12 tournament title in 1997. In her career, Pebley earned all-conference accolades twice, including a second team All-Big 12 selection in 1997. She is the first former All-Big 12 selection to return to coach in the league.

CU made two Sweet 16 appearances during her career, including a trip to the Elite Eight during her sophomore season, as the Buffs won a school-record 30 games (30-3 overall). Colorado won 25-straight games that season and finished the year ranked No. 2 in the final AP poll.

Pebley, whose maiden name is Scott, was one of nine players in CU history to score over 1,000 career points (1,045) and collect over 700 rebounds (701). Pebley played under legendary head coach Ceal Barry at Colorado, who in 2004 became the 24th coach ever in women's NCAA history to reach 500 career wins.

Pebley and her husband, Keith, have one son, Joseph, and one daughter, Harper.
