TCU’s basketball revival continues.

Kenrich Williams has made the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans roster. The former TCU forward/ guard went undrafted, but impressed enough in training camp to earn a spot on the 15-man roster.

Williams is the first NBA player from TCU since 2012-13, Kurt Thomas’ final season. Williams had a standout career with the Frogs, averaging 11 points and 8.6 rebounds over his three-year career in which he started 85 games. Williams finished his TCU career with 1,125 points, 877 rebounds and 271 assists.

Williams started his professional career with the Denver Nuggets before signing with the Pelicans on July 24. Williams averaged 2.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game in five preseason games.

New Orleans starts its season at Houston on Wednesday.
