In another low-scoring game TCU was able to sweep the season series with rival Texas Tech with a consistent and balanced effort Wednesday. The Horned Frogs had nine players on the board, but none of them were really a primary scoring option for most of the game until Kyan Anderson took over late.
The Horned Frogs, who led for almost the entire game Wednesday, shot 44.4 percent from the field, while out-rebounding the Red Raiders, 37-36. When it was all said and done, TCU did it on both ends of the court, holding Texas Tech to a dismal 8.3 percent from behind the arc, which included an 0-for-5 showing from deep in the first half.
Skoug, the designated hitter, turned on a 3-1 pitch from Felix Gomez to deliver TCU’s third hit of the game and his second career home run.
