The Frogs hang tight all game, but can't close at the end.
Losing to Tech sucks, so this game wrap up will be brief. Tech is not a good offensive team, TCU allowed them to shoot .622 from the floor (they were especially dominant inside the paint) and that's really all that needs to be said. A really poor defensive outing for the frogs, made all the more frustrating by the fact that the TCU offense was actually doing well for significant stretches. Still, there were two players on each team that took more than ten shots in this game: Jordan Tolbert (9-10) and Dejan Kravic (7-11) for Tech and Kyan Anderson (6-15) and Garlon Green (2-10) for TCU. That difference is your ballgame as TCU hammered Tech on the offensive glass, collecting 9 offensive rebounds to Tech's 3, and even shot better than Tech at the free throw line. Let me repeat that. TCU OUTSHOT TECH AT THE FREE THROW LINE AND LOST. That's how bad the interior defense was for the frogs, and that's why they will finish last in the Big 12 in their debut season. There's a lot of good to look forward to in this program, there are a lot of good reasons why the frogs haven't been winning many games, but that doesn't help the win column for this season as the miraculous win over Kansas is still lonely, waiting for another conference win to play with. I guess it'll have to wait until next year.
