New seats, USC to greet TCU hoops

TCU is in the process of replacing the old, purple wooden chairs in the lower bowl of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum with new cushioned purple seats for the coming season. The administration hopes the new seats will help to fill a typically half-empty arena, especially on dates such as Nov. 29 when USC comes to town as part of the 2010 Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament.

The Frogs will compete in three games at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass., from Nov. 20-23 before welcoming the Trojans. They'll face Rider, Bradley and UMass.
