Iowa State Is Good, TCU Is Bad... That About Sums It Up

Chuck Cook -US PRESSWIRE

I am sure there is a lot more I could say here... But why bother.

TCU held high-scoring Iowa State to its lowest output of the season Saturday, but it wasn't enough as the Cyclones left Daniel-Meyer Coliseum with a 63-50 victory in the teams' first matchup as Big 12 opponents.

TCU fell to 9-9 overall and 0-5 in Big 12 play with the setback, while Iowa State improved to 13-4 overall and 3-1 in league action.

Three players shared the TCU scoring lead, as sophomore forward Devonta Abron, senior guard/forward Garlon Green and freshman guard Charles Hill Jr. totaled 10 points apiece. Green added six rebounds to match senior forward Connell Crossland and senior forward Adrick McKinney for the team lead on the glass. McKinney chipped in eight points, and senior guard Nate Butler Lind scored six points to go with five boards and a pair of steals.

TCU's scoring woes continued Saturday against ISU, as the squad shot 36.4 percent from the field overall and only 1-of-10 from 3-point range. The Frogs had several opportunities at the charity stripe that failed to drop, as well, going 9-of-22 at the line.

Iowa State, which entered the game ranked seventh nationally in scoring and 10th in 3-pointers made, had fewer troubles on the offensive end. The Cyclones buried an even 50.0 percent of their field-goal attempts and outscored the Frogs 19-14 in second-chance points despite collecting five fewer offensive rebounds. TCU did force the squad into 16 turnovers, leading to 13 Frog points.
