TCU Horned Frogs Quotable

"We got careless with the ball late in the game," TCU freshman point guard Kendric Davis said following the Horned Frogs’ 71-62 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners. "When we were getting stops, we gave away like I want to say three of them to either a bad shot or a turnover."

Oklahoma State Cowboys Quotable

"That's kind of a moving target. I put a walk-on on scholarship, but he broke his foot," Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton said following the Cowboys’ 69-57 loss to Texas. "(Texas) has players who weren't even dressed that could start for us ... I still sense a very frustrated group that feels like it cannot win."

TCU

The Horned Frogs are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall and have dropped 10 of their last 11 road games at the betting window when playing a team with a losing home record.

Oklahoma State

The Cowboys are 2-10 against the number in their last 12 home games and 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 games overall.

Prediction

When Thomas Dziagwa isn’t connecting from 3-point range, the Cowboys have very little working for them offensively. They were just 12-of-30 inside the arc against the Longhorns in their last game and finished 9-of-18 from the free throw line. Dziagwa struggled in this area as well, posting a dreadful 0-for-6 when he wasn’t shooting from long range. With Kouat Noi on the bench with a boot on his left ankle, TCU was just ninefor-32 from 3-point range against Oklahoma. Thus, I expect the Horned Frogs to get the ball down low tonight and win in the paint. And with Boynton’s squad lacking confidence, this is a small price to lay on a TCU team that should be motivated to end its two-game losing skid.
