TCU Athletes of the Week


Jan. 10, 2018

FORT WORTH, Texas – Vladimir Brodziansky of men’s basketball and Marie Norris of women’s tennis have been named this week’s TCU Athletes of the Week.

Brodziansky averaged 19.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in a 1-1 week for the TCU men’s basketball team. He scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead the Frogs to an 81-78 overtime win at Baylor. It was TCU’s first win over Baylor since the 2002-03 season. Brodziansky led the team in scoring for the second-straight game with 20 points and five rebounds against No. 10 Kansas. He went 10-for-10 at the free throw line, helping the Frogs make 21-of-22 attempts from the charity stripe for a percentage of 95.5. It was the third-best effort from the free throw line for a TCU team with at least 20 attempts.

Brodziansky and the men’s basketball team will travel to Austin, Texas, on Wednesday to take on Texas at 8 p.m. The Horned Frogs’ road trip will continue on Saturday when they travel to Norman, Okla., to take on No. 9 Oklahoma.

Norris went 2-0 in singles at the Weinman Foundation Invitational in Honolulu, Oahu, hosted by the University of Hawaii. Both of Norris’ wins came in three sets, defeating Hawaii’s Alzbeta Houbova 6-3, 4-6, 10-2, and California’s Alexis Nelson 6-4, 4-6, 6-0. She was the only Horned Frog to go undefeated in singles during the tournament.

Norris and the women’s tennis team return to the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center to host Southern Miss and Arkansas State for a double-header on Friday, Jan. 19 at 9 a.m., and 1 p.m., respectively.
