07:36 AM ET 01.27 | These days, an unfortunate saying applies in Fort Worth: If it weren't for bad luck, they'd have no luck at all. That's what Trent Johnson must be thinking now as he has learned his best freshman Karviar Shepherd will miss an indefinite amount of time to undergo surgery on his non-shooting hand. Shepherd suffered the injury in Saturday's game against Kansas, a source confirmed. ... The Frogs will now play with just seven scholarship players, and the seventh, sophomore Clyde Smith, has played in just eight of the team's games, averaging just over four minutes per contest. Devonta Abron is out with a torn achilles. Aaron Durley is out with a torn ACL. Chris Washburn was not granted a waiver to play this season by the NCAA after transferring from UTEP. Trey Ziegler is sitting out due to transfer rules, and Charles Hill is academically ineligible.

don't remember final count, but UTx only had 5 on scholly at the beginning of the school year.

Johnson should just walk over to Dunbar and see if any players could transfer to TCU. Problem solved.

I did not know they had any scholarship players to begin with, that was news within itself.
