Zeigler ready for last go around

TCU senior guard Trey Zeigler feels he could be one of the missing pieces to turn TCU around in 2014-15.

Kansas CITY, Kan - Playing for his third school in four years, TCU guard Trey Ziegler looks to end his college career helping the Horned Frogs turn their program around after a 9-22 campaign last season.

At Central Michigan in 2011-12 as a sophomore, Zeigler averaged over 15 points per contest and led the Chippewas in rebounding - earning all-conference honors for his father Ernie Zeigler.

When his father was fired as Central Michigan's head coach, Zeigler left for Pitt, but never seemed to be comfortable into Jamie Dixon's system. Looking for a better fit, Ziegler decided to head to Fort Worth and sat out last season per NCAA transfer rules.

"He's one of our leaders," said TCU head coach Trent Johnson. "He's a guy that's got to perform at a high level, and I think he's excited about this, it's his last go around. But he'll play the two for us, he'll play the three, and sometimes he'll be in situations where he'll play the one.

"He's a guy that can create for himself. He's a scorer, not a shooter. He's a guy that can create for himself and can create for others."

Zeigler represented TCU at Big 12 Media Day and Scout.com caught up with the senior to talk about his upcoming season.
