2021–22 TCU Horned Frogs men's basketball team

The 2021–22 TCU Horned Frogs men's basketball team represented Texas Christian University during the 2021–22 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The team was led by sixth-year head coach Jamie Dixon, and played their home games at Schollmaier Arena in Fort Worth, Texas as a member of the Big 12 Conference. They finished the season 21–13, 8–10 in Big 12 play to finish in fifth place. As the No. 5 seed in the Big 12 tournament, they defeated Texas in the quarterfinals, before losing to Kansas in the semifinals. They received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament as the No. 9 seed in the South Region, where they defeated Seton Hall in the first round before losing to Arizona in the second round in an overtime thriller. There is a small controversy regarding the final play in regular time during the game verses Arizona. Mike Miles looked like he had been fouled but the foul was not called. Is is thought that Miles could have made the free throw shots since there was a bonus. These shots would have sealed the game for a victory against Arizona.[1]
