Kyan Anderson scored 17 straight points for the Frogs during one stretch on his way to 27 points for the game, and the Frogs finally got a win that was as easy as it should have been, destroying Grambling State 98-75.

For the Frogs, it was the highest scoring output since a 103-40 win over Austin College in November of 2011.

Four Frogs scored in double figures, Anderson, Michael Williams (14), Karviar Shepherd (12) and Brandon Parrish (11). Jarvis Ray added nine points and six rebounds. Anderson also had five assists and three steals, while Williams also contributed with six assists.

Shepherd barely missed out on his second straight double-double, pulling down eight rebounds on the night, but he also had four blocked shots and was generally dominant inside.

As a team TCU shot 53.4% from the floor and 52.9% from three point range, while making 81.8% from the charity stripe. If the Frogs can continue to make free throws at that clip, that alone should make them more competitive in the Big 12 than a year ago.

Grambling State was led by their guard play, as four players (Antwan Scott, A'Torri Shine, Terry Rose and Remond Brown) combined for 51 of the Tigers' 75 points.

TCU improves to 7-3 on the season, and the Big 12 now has all 10 members at at least 7-4 or better.

The Frogs take on Tulsa this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at the DMC. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Southwest Plus.
