TCU knocks off another ranked team at home
Too vividly he remembers the Horned Frogs' 13-game losing streak to end the regular season a year ago.
Fields scored eight consecutive points for TCU in a 48-second span during the tiebreaking run and the Frogs upset another ranked team at home, beating No. 18 New Mexico 83-64 on Saturday night.
"It's unreal how it can turn around in a year as long as you just buy into the system and everybody plays hard," Fields said.
TCU (17-11, 7-5 Mountain West Conference) has won eight consecutive home games, the last two over Top 25 teams. The Frogs are guaranteed their first winning season since 2004-05.
"I couldn't be more proud of this team," coach Jim Christian said. "The only thing you want as a coach, you want to see your team grow and grow as the year goes on. And our team, without question, has grown maybe as much anybody in the country."
J.R. Cadot had 15 points and 10 rebounds for TCU, leading six players in double-figure scoring.
