TCU Athletics | @TCUBasketball

TCU Men’s Basketball is looking to remain undefeated for the 2023-24 campaign, taking on the Alcorn State Braves on Tuesday night from Schollmaier Arena. The Horned Frogs moved to 4-0 on Friday with an 86-52 victory over the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils as five Frogs scored in double digits and TCU exploded for 43 fast break points and 44 points in the paint. Through four games, JaKobe Coles leads the Frogs with 15.3 points per game while Ernest Udeh Jr. is the leading rebounder with 6.5 per game while averaging under 15 minutes of time on the court.

Alcorn State enters the game with a 1-4 record on the season, following an 81-49 loss at Michigan State on Sunday. The Braves’ lone victory on the season is over NAIA squad Xavier Louisiana. Alcorn State earned two first place votes in the preseason SWAC poll, landing at 3rd overall. The Braves are powered by powered by preseason First Team All-SWAC forward Jeremiah Kendall who is averaging 18.5 points and 10 rebounds per game. He found himself in early foul trouble vs. the Spartans, fouling out after just 19 minutes, but the 6’7” Senior from New York will be one to watch on both ends of the court as he also averages nearly 2 steals and 1 block per game.
