Shawn Olden did not play for TCU against Texas on Saturday, and coach Jamie Dixon shed light on the absence following the Horned Frogs’ 87-71 win over the Longhorns.
Dixon told reporters that the junior guard was in concussion protocol, though it was not revealed when Olden sustained the injury. Olden had been seen exiting TCU’s loss at Kansas on Tuesday mid-game, but returned to the court before the final buzzer sounded.

Dixon added that it was unclear if Olden would be ready to go for the Horned Frogs’ next matchup on the road at West Virginia Monday night. Olden was responsible for 20 points in the teams’ first meeting this season in Fort Worth — which resulted in TCU’s first ever win over the Mountaineers since joining the Big 12.
TCU’s victory over the Longhorns on Saturday was the team’s first weekend win since the calendars flipped to 2018. The Horned Frogs are looking to finish the regular season on a strong note — having fallen to a No. 10 seed in ESPN’s latest bracketology for the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
The Horned Frogs will enter Morgantown, W. Va. with a 17-8 overall record and 5-7 mark within Big 12 play. TCU can sweep the regular-season series against West Virginia with a win.
