The Frogs came back from 12 points down in the second half to move to 19-5 on the season. They came into this week unranked, which is tomfoolery.
The Wildcats scored the first bucket of the fourth quarter, but it was all TCU after that as the Horned Frogs used runs of 6-0 and 7-0 to build a four-point lead, 53-49. K-State made just three of its next four free throw attempts and Heard managed to make a late free throw to give TCU the two-point win.
We have reached the “other random players pop off against TCU” portion of the season.
Baker was a top-50 recruit but had struggled to crack the Texas lineup, and had scored a total of 16 points all season. Pressed into the game because of a season-ending back injury to junior forward Jericho Sims, Baker scored 15 points in the first half, including three 3-pointers.

“He knows how I want the quarterbacks coached in terms of teaching and progressions,” TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie told the Star-Telegram in August 2019. “He just recently played the position, so I think the guys are really comfortable coming to him. ‘How do you read that? What was it like for you?’ Those recent experiences that he has, they’re still fresh. They saw him play and he can really be a factor that way and helping those guys.”
