CBS has TCU men’s basketball facing Kentucky in latest bracketology

If TCU men’s basketball partakes in the 2018 edition of March Madness, Jamie Dixon and the Horned Frogs could be facing a noteworthy opponent right out of the gate.

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm had TCU facing Kentucky to open the NCAA Tournament in his latest bracketology. The No. 11 seeded Horned Frogs and No. 6 seeded Wildcats were slotted for the Midwest, with the projected contest taking place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

While No. 24 Kentucky hasn’t quite shown the dominance that it has in recent seasons, facing John Calipari and the Wildcats would be quite the welcome back for the Horned Frogs to the NCAA Tournament. TCU has not qualified for the event since 1998.

Of course, the matchup — should it hold and take place in Nashville — would inevitably see a pro-Kentucky crowd on hand. Lexington, Ky is approximately a three-hour, forty-minute drive away from Nashville.

Nonetheless, the potential showdown would provide the Horned Frogs a chance to make a splash early on in the tournament if they were to emerge victorious.

The Horned Frogs return to action with a home game vs. Texas on Saturday. Selection Sunday is just more than a month away, set for March 11.
