Fields, Green lead TCU over Cal Poly 53-46

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Amric Fields scored a game-high 16 points, and Garlon Green brought down seven rebounds, as TCU overcame a slow start to beat Cal Poly 53-46 on Friday night and give Trent Johnson his first career win with the Horned Frogs.

Green made a pair of free throws with 17:54 left to put TCU up 24-23. He had 10 points in the game.

TCU trailed the Mustangs 21-10 at halftime. Cal Poly held TCU to just one field goal over the first 12 minutes of the season opener.

Then, Fields responded with a dunk for his second basket, which was followed by a three-pointer from Nate Butler Lind and a pair of jumpers by Green.

Kyan Anderson made three 3-pointers in the second half to finish with 11 points for the Frogs.

Brian Bennett led the Mustangs with 10 points and 13 rebounds. Cal Poly shot 35 percent from the field.

PHOTOS: What the media attention on Rui Hachimura looks like at Wizards workouts

WASHINGTON -- If it wasn't clear on draft night in Brooklyn or the next day at his introductory press conference in Washington, Wizards first round pick Rui Hachimura is a massive deal back in his home country of Japan. He gets the star treatment from Japanese media and that attention has followed him through the first two days of Wizards mini-camp.

Usually, Wizards mini-camp isn't even open to the media. Most years, the Wizards host undrafted players and members of their G-League team with little fanfare as they get set for the Las Vegas Summer League in early July.

But this year has been markedly different with dozens of Japanese reporters and photographers arriving early and staying late, all competing for information about Hachimura to report home to their respective outlets.

While the Wizards' pre-draft workouts, some featuring big-named prospects, had five-to-10 reporters show up to the Wizards' practice facility, the total media contingent probably pushes 50 now.

Here are some photos to put it in perspective...

Here's a photo from Hachimura's press conference on Friday...

On Tuesday at mini-camp, there were two sets of media scrums for Wizards Summer League coach Robert Pack. He first did one with American reporters, then one with those from Japan, who had a lot of questions about one player in particular, of course...

With Hachimura on board, it's a new era for the Wizards when it comes to media attention.
