The TCU men’s basketball team fell to 1-2 on its four-game Canadian tour with a 77-51 loss to Carleton University on Sunday night in Ottawa, Ontario.

Junior Kyan Anderson led the Horned Frogs with 12 points. Charles Hill Jr. had 11 points and freshman Hudson Price had 10.

Anderson scored 14 points Saturday night to lead TCU to a 52-42 victory over the Guardsmen Alumni at the Carleton campus.

TCU led by as many as 18 Saturday. Junior Devonta Abron scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds.

The series ends tonight against the Montreal All-Stars in Montreal.

UT’s Hicks apologizes

Linebacker Jordan Hicks, speaking publicly for the first time since he and quarterback Case McCoy were suspended from the Alamo Bowl last December, apologized for his actions Saturday night after the Longhorns’ final open practice, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

The suspensions came while San Antonio police were investigating a sexual assault accusation at a downtown hotel, but charges were never filed in the case.

LSU QB impressive

New LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron isn’t yet ready to promise that quarterback Zach Mettenberger and his top returning receivers will be better than the collection of talented underachievers they resembled a year ago.

For now, the longtime college and NFL coach expresses optimism that the progress he’s seen at practice, particularly with Mettenberger, bodes well for this season, which begins Aug. 31 against TCU in Arlington.

“There is no throw that this kid can’t make. None,” Cameron said, comparing Mettenberger’s throwing ability to that of reigning Joe Flacco, whom Cameron coached in Baltimore. “He knows there’s more to it than just having an arm.”

Briefly

• Oklahoma State football: Coach Mike Gundy announced after Saturday’s scrimmage that freshman Ben Grogan from Arlington Martin High School will be the Cowboys’ field-goal kicker when they open the season against Mississippi State, the Oklahoman reported.

•  Vanderbilt football: Brandon Banks has turned himself into police, the fourth and final former Vanderbilt player arrested after being indicted on five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery involving an unconscious student at a campus dormitory in June.
