Recap: TCU falls to Texas, 71-54

Texas outlasts TCU in one that was never really close

Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

The TCU Horned Frogs drop their fifth straight game and fall to 9-11 (1-7 in Big 12 play). The Longhorns held TCU to 33% from the floor, and forced 19 Horned Frog turnovers en route to a 71-54 victory in Austin.

Texas utilized their full-court press and aggressive play in the paint to set the tone early, and never trailed after the first TCU basket of the game. TCU was unable to get much going defensively and the offense never seemed in sync. Texas is now 4-1 in their last 5 games since losing to TCU in Fort Worth, including wins over #7 West Virginia and #18 Iowa State.

TCU will look to right the ship against Tennessee this Saturday at 1:00pm in Fort Worth. The game will also be televised on ESPN 2 and ESPN3/WatchESPN
