TCU Athletics | @TCUBasketball

The TCU Horned Frogs will spend the entire month of December away from Fort Worth, beginning with a trip to the nation’s capital for the Big 12-Big East Battle vs. the Georgetown Hoyas.

TCU enters the game with a perfect 6-0 record, coming off a 101-64 victory over Houston Christian on Monday. The trip to Washington DC is the Frogs’ first road trip of the season and the first game vs. a Power 6 conference foe. Five Horned Frogs are averaging double-digit scoring, led by JaKobe Cole’s with 15.5 points per game. TCU defeated the Hoyas in the Big East-Big 12 Battle in 2021 and defeated Georgetown’s new head coach Ed Cooley in the Battle last season when he was coaching Providence.

The Hoyas are 5-2 on the season, falling at Rutgers and suffering a stunning home loss to Holy Cross. Georgetown also have five players averaging 10+ points per game, led by guard Jayden Epps with 18.4 points and 4.4 assists per game.

The Battle is currently tied 3-3 headed into Saturday. The Big 12 has wins by Houston over Xavier, Iowa State over DePaul, and Kansas over UConn. The Big East has wins by Butler over Texas Tech, Creighton over Oklahoma State, and St. John’s over West Virginia.

Can the Horned Frogs go get a key non-conference victory and notch another win for the conference in the Big East-Big 12 Battle? Join us in the comments section below as we follow today’s contest.
