It was a rough start for TCU, less than 48 hours after drilling Grambling State into the ground, as the Frogs shot only 30% in the first half against Tulsa.
Rebounding wasn't great, shooting was awful, and the defense couldn't get a stop as Tulsa pulled out to a seven point lead at halftime.
However, in the second half Kyan Anderson stepped up big time, leading TCU back from as many as 10 points down in the second half to get the win. Anderson shot 7/15 from the floor, and had 25 points on the day. It was Anderson's 9th career 20 point outing, and his third of the season.
Anderson was complimented nicely by Brandon Parrish, who had a career high 17 points to go with six rebounds on the day. They were the only two Frogs to score in double digits.
After two straight outings in double digits, Karviar Shepherd was held to 8 points on the day, and 5 reounds. He was hampered with foul trouble for a lot of the second half.
One of the biggest performances of the day came from walk on Thomas Montigel, who was responsible for holding down the paint with Shepherd on the bench. Montigel finished the day with six points and three rebounds.
Tulsa was led by James Woodward and Rashad Smith, with 15 and 12 points respectively, and helped Tulsa dominate for most of the game.
One key in the comeback was turnovers, and Tulsa committed 18 on the day and 12 in the second half of the game. TCU once again made free throws late to seal the deal, and shot 87% from the free throw line on the day (20-23).
TCU has a full week off before their next game, when they take on Texas Southern, a team that Tulsa beat by 27 earlier this year. TCU will have Amric Fields back for that game.
