Indiana State lead the nation in three point shooting (48%) coming into Sunday, but the Frogs absolutely shut them down from deep.

A crucial element to the Horned Frogs’ victory was their defense. They limited the Sycamores to 19 percent shooting from the three-point line, 29 percentage points lower than their NCAA-best 48.2 percent mark that they brought into Sunday’s game.

“We wanted to guard the perimeter,” said TCU head coach Jamie Dixon. “We wanted to take away the three, and obviously the team led the country in 3-point shooting: We held them to 18 percent.”
