TCU dominated Kansas State on Wednesday, so we take a look inside the numbers.

The Frogs followed up a 70-55 win over Oklahoma State with more of the same. With a 69-55 victory over Kansas State, TCU is officially on a Big 12 winning streak and it feels oh-so-good. It's a first for the Horned Frogs since joining the conference, but that wasn't the only big thing about the win on Wednesday night. Let's go inside the numbers to get a better feel for TCU's victory.

2 - The number of consecutive Big 12 games TCU has now won. HOORAY.

19-0 - TCU finished the first half on a 19-0 run, turning a 16-15 lead into a 35-15 lead at the half.

9:42 - The minute mark in the first half when Kansas State scored their last basket of the half. TCU's defense locked down for the rest of the period, helping assert a 20-point halftime lead.

1,519 - Kyan Anderson's new scoring total as a Horned Frog, good for 6th all-time. With his second made basket of the night he passed the great Kurt Thomas. He's now 111 points from overtaking the No. 5 spot from Reggie Smith.

16% - Kansas State's shooting percentage in the first half. They were 4-25 from the field.

53.5% - TCU's shooting percentage from the floor. The Frogs shot 63% in the first half to help gain a lead, and never really looked back. It's the second consecutive game TCU has shot above 50% from the floor.

4 - Horned Frogs in double digits, led by Chris Washburn who had 17 on 4-of-7 shooting. Washburn was also 9-of-13 from the free throw line. Both his points total and free throw totals were career highs.

8 - Number of rebounds Washburn and Karviar Shepherd pulled down for TCU. The Frogs were outrebounded 37-28, but that didn't matter in the end, as Kansas State couldn't convert on their second chances with regularity.

61.3% - TCU's free throw percentage. Not great, but better than Kansas State's 56% from the line.
