FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) This was the kind of home-court celebration Jamie Dixon envisioned for TCU when he returned to his alma mater less than two years ago.

Students spilled onto the court, some even lifting Dixon into the air, after the Horned Frogs beat No. 7 West Virginia 82-73 on Monday night. Their first home win over a Top 10 team in nearly five years came on the same day they dropped out of the AP Top 25.

"We had lost so many of these, so many opportunities, close games, even the last two years, home games, big crowd, atmosphere," Dixon said. "We've had leads, and we had opportunity, and it just didn't happen for whatever reason."
