TCU Basketball has, for all intents and purposes, long punched its ticket to the Big Dance.

It’s still a weird thing to say about Horned Frogs hoops, who will make consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances for the first time since 1952/53.

Just a casual 70 years.

But, by virtue of their 20 regular season wins, including five over Top 25 opponents, and their nine conference wins — a program best since joining the Big 12 — there’s not a question whether Jamie Dixon will lead his team into uncharted territory or not come Selection Sunday, only how high a seed they will garner.

But before seeding can be set, there’s a little business to take care of in Kansas City, as TCU looks to regain the mojo they lost in Norman Saturday in the regular-season finale and head into the single-elimination NCAA Tournament with a winning mentality.

Before we look ahead to Thursday’s opener against Kansas State, let’s take a look back at how the Frogs got here, as the No. 6 seed in the Big 12 Tournament.
