Game Thread: TCU vs. No. 19 Baylor

The Frogs look to get their second win in Big 12 play when they head to Waco Wednesday night.

Andrew said it best in today's preview:

For TCU to pull off the road upset, the Frogs need to keep up the defensive intensity that we've seen TCU display throughout the season. In the first matchup, TCU held Baylor to 53 points on 28.3% shooting in regulation. In that game, the Bears shot only 1/12 from behind the arc, a significant defensive accomplishment for TCU against the second-best three-point shooting team in the Big 12.

In addition to the tough defensive pressure, TCU also needs to break the Baylor zone and hit shots in the paint. In the first game, the Frogs were able to penetrate through the zone, but barely shot above 50% in the lane. This almost goes without saying, but the Frogs will also have to be productive at the free throw line to pull off a win tonight. TCU is dead last in the Big 12 in free throw shooting, at 60.2%, partly in thanks to the 53.6% mark the Frogs posted in the first contest against Baylor.
