TCU senior Garlon Green had dreamed of a victory over Kansas.

His dream came true in a most unexpected way. The Horned Frogs hadn't won a Big 12 game since moving to their new league before their stunning 62-55 victory over the fifth-ranked Jayhawks on Wednesday night.

TCU (10-12, 1-8 Big 12) never trailed and built as much as a 16-point lead, the largest deficit of the season for Kansas.

Green says the Frogs, who have lost three key players to season-ending injuries, put their heart and soul into every game and every practice. They got rewarded with maybe the biggest upset in college basketball this season.

Green says it was fun, but that the Frogs now have to build on that momentum. They host West Virginia on Saturday.
