A faint Rock Chalk could be heard as the clock hit zero at Schollmaier arena, as Kansas held off TCU to win 86-80.
One thing is for certain, though. This Frogs team is different than in years past. It competes just as hard, but has a vastly improved roster that will allow the Frogs to be in games late.
One big piece is Vlad Brodziansky, who scored a career high 28 points, while pulling down nine rebounds. Vlad was also 10-11 from the free throw line, keeping TCU in it until the very end.
Meanwhile, Frank Mason did Frank Mason things for Kansas, scoring 22 points to go with seven assists and four rebounds.
The Frogs were aided by a double-double from Kenrich Williams, but 15 team turnovers hurt the Frogs, as did the 20 points Kansas scored off of them.
TCU also caught Kansas, an abysmal free throw shooting team, on a night when the Jayhawks shot 20-25 from the line. The Frogs held their own though, going 19-25.
Ultimately, we learned that TCU is ready to compete, but there's still a ways to go. TCU is now 11-2, while Kansas improves to 12-1.
The Frogs face Oklahoma next, on Tuesday, January 3rd at the Scholly.
