NCAA Basketball: Washington at Texas Christian Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn’t pretty, but TCU did manage to come away with a 72-63 win over Wofford in the first meeting ever between the two programs. The Frogs overcame a slow start and poor free throw shooting in order to improve to 9-1 this season.

TCU took an 18-17 lead with 6:51 remaining in the first half and would never trail again in the game. The Frogs struggled shooting the ball today, making only 42.9% of field goals and only 31.6% from beyond the arc. They managed to get to the free throw line a lot today, but only converted 24 of their 41 attempts, which is 58.5%.

The Frogs did a good job of sharing the scoring load today as five players had double-digit points. Freshman Jaylen Fisher led the way with 13.

Kenrich Williams had his fourth-straight game with double-digit rebounds and ended the day with a double-double, dropping in 11 points with his 13 boards.

Wofford was led by guard Fletcher Magee who scored 18 points and had 6 rebounds. Ryan Sawvell also had a good game for the Terriers, scoring 12 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

The team will take this next week off due to finals, but will return to Schollmaier Arena on Sunday, December 18th to face Texas Southern.
