TCU’s offense failed to show up against the Bears.

It was arguably TCU’s worst offensive game of the season, as TCU scored a season-low 52 points on 38% shooting from the floor Saturday against Baylor. TCU fell to 17-8 on the season, and 6-6 in Big 12 play.

This was simply not a good game for the Frogs, unless your name was Jaylen Fisher. Fisher scored a career high 18 points, on 6-9 shooting from the floor.

The Frogs shot just 25% from the floor in the first half, and didn’t make their first three-pointer until about the 15:00-mark of the second half. Baylor’s defense was swarming, but the Frogs still managed to get open looks that they just couldn’t hit.

This was always going to be a tough game for TCU, as Baylor is projected to be a No. 1 seed in the tournament, but it’s safe to say fans were hoping for more of a challenge from the Frogs.

Kenrich Williams shot 5-10 from the floor, to finish with 10 points and 6 rebounds. He and Fisher were the only two Frogs to finish with double-digit points.

Meanwhile, for Baylor, Johnathan Motley led the way with 25 points for Baylor, as the Bears improved to 22-3 on the season.

The Frogs were also outrebounded 36-26, as Baylor’s size made a difference. That size also manifested in 42 points in the paint for the Bears.

Vlad, TCU’s leader for most of the season, had a rough game, shooting just 3-12 from the floor, and pulling down 5 rebounds.

The Frogs will have to regroup quickly, as they take on an Oklahoma State team Wednesday that beat the Frogs by 13 in their first meeting. With only six games left in the regular season, TCU needs this win to keep their tournament hopes alive.
