Frogs Set for Australia Tour
Aug. 2, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The TCU women's basketball team is in the final stages of preparation for a 12-day tour of Australia. The Frogs will depart on Saturday for Sydney and also spend time in Melbourne.
The Horned Frogs will play four games during their tour, with three coming as part of doubleheaders with the TCU men's team. TCU is the only university in the nation taking a women's and men's basketball joint tour this summer.
After arriving in Sydney on Monday, Aug. 7, the Frogs will play their first game on Aug. 8 against the Hornsby Spiders at 6 p.m. AES/3 a.m. CST at Kevin Betts Stadium in Mount Druitt, a Sydney suburb.
After a complete day exploring Sydney, the Frogs will return to the court on Aug. 10. TCU will take on the Australian Institute of Sport's Centre of Excellence (COE) at 6 p.m. AES/3 a.m. CST at the Minto Indoor Sport Centre.
The Frogs will then travel to Melbourne on Aug. 11, and remain in the Victoria capital for the remainder of their trip. TCU will visit Dromana, the hometown of current Frog Ella Hellessey, on Aug. 12.
TCU will get back into action on Aug. 13 when it takes on the NITP All-Stars at 2:30 p.m. AES/11:30 p.m. CST at the Marcellin College Gym. That will be the only game for the TCU women that is not part of a doubleheader with the TCU men.
After a community service event and a day exploring Melbourne, TCU will play for the final time on Aug. 15. The Frogs will take on the Knox Raiders at 6 p.m. AES/3 a.m. CST at the State Basketball Centre.
TCU will return home to Fort Worth on Wednesday, Aug. 16.
