The Big 12 released its men’s basketball schedule Thursday, including TCU’s conference slate that begins Jan. 4.

The Horned Frogs open with home games against West Virginia and Kansas State before playing at Baylor on Jan. 11.

TCU will have at least six games telecast on ESPN networks.

The Frogs end the regular season at West Virginia on March 1, at Texas on March 4, and home against Oklahoma on March 8.

NCAA memorabilia

Less than a week after ESPN basketball analyst Jay Bilas launched a series of Twitter posts that depicted the football and basketball jerseys of specific college athletes being sold through the NCAA Shop website, NCAA president Mark Emmert said the sales would end immediately.

The NCAA is being sued by former players and a handful of current college players in federal court over the use of athlete images and likenesses.

ESPN also reported that the NCAA is investigating Heisman Trophy-winner Johnny Manziel for allegedly being paid to sign memorabilia, which if true could jeopardize his eligibility under NCAA amateurism rules.

Manziels hire lawyer

Johnny Manziel’s family hired Jim Darnell, an El Paso attorney with experience in NCAA matters as the Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M faces an investigation into whether he was paid to sign autographs.

“We think when all this comes out on the other end, he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Aggies against Rice,” Darnell told USA Today.

James wins lawsuit

A judge is preparing to grant judgment in favor of Craig James, ESPN Inc. and a public relations firm in lawsuits brought against them by football coach Mike Leach after he was fired by Texas Tech.

Leach attorney Stephen Heninger said that the judge sent letters to attorneys, asking defense attorneys to draw up an order for summary judgment in the cases.

Heninger said Leach, now the coach at Washington State, would appeal once the judge rules.

Texas Tech fired Leach in December 2009 amid accusations he mistreated James’ son, a player who had a concussion.

The suit against ESPN and Spaeth Communication alleged libel and slander.

In February, the last remaining count in Leach’s lawsuit against the school was dismissed.

Driskell returns

Florida cleared quarterback Jeff Driskel, who missed the first week of practice following an appendectomy.
