There were some really disconcerting stats to come from this game.
The offense had a season-low 222 yards, including minus-7 rushing yards on 24 attempts. It’s the worst rushing performance since it produced minus-26 yards against Texas A&M in 2001.
The 10 points scored were a season-low. TCU has scored 28 or fewer points in eight consecutive games, the first time that’s happened since the 1-10 season in 1997.
Baylor QB Charlie Brewer was ejected during the Iowa State game after receiving his second unsportsmanlike conduct. Apparently that doesn’t mean he has to miss time, since it wasn’t a targeting/fighting penalty.
Players ejected from games are usually subject to missing two halves, but a Big 12 spokesperson said that rule applies only to targeting and fighting penalties. Brewer was ejected after making a remark to an official.
The Frogs move to 2-0 behind strong performances from Alex Robinson, Desmond Bane, and JD Miller.
Robinson scored 23 points, Bane added 22 to go with the 6-foot-8 Miller’s game-high seven assists and the 20th-ranked Horned Frogs never trailed after struggling in the opener, rolling to a 79-62 victory over Oral Roberts on Sunday.
Freshman Kevin Samuel had a solid night, recording his first double-double of his collegiate career.
Overall, it was Robinson who led the team in scoring. He finished one off his career-high with 23 points, going 7-for-10 from the field and 4-for-6 from 3-point range. Bane followed with a 22-point performance and Miller scored in double-digits for the second consecutive game and had a career-high seven assists. Redshirt freshman Kevin Samuel recorded his first career double-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. As a team the Frogs shot 50.9 percent from the field.
Jordan Moore is one of the greatest to ever hoop at TCU.
Jordan Moore became the 18th player in TCU history to reach 1,000 career points when she scored 18 first-half points in the Horned Frogs’ 96-47 victory over Mississippi Valley State in front of 1,576 fans.
Moore was 8-of-12 from the field in only 15 minutes. She is also just the fifth player in program history to eclipse 1,000 career points while also grabbing 600 rebounds.
