The 11-3 Horned Frogs are set to take on the 13-1 Sooners in the Schollmaier Arena on Wednesday night. TCU is currently 7-0 at home and aims to maintain their undefeated streak.

The Horned Frogs are coming off an 83-81 loss to the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks. In a back-and-forth game with 26 lead changes, the Jayhawks secured the victory down the stretch after a Flagrant I foul against Ernest Udeh Jr.

The Jayhawks sank two free throws and took a two-point lead and center Hunter Dickinson sealed the victory with a game-winning layup assisted by Dajuan Harris Jr. Despite TCU experiencing their first loss in conference play, it was one of the most impressive performances so far this season.

The Sooners enter this game following a 71-63 win over the Iowa State Cyclones. Oklahoma had four players finish in double figures: Javian McCollum with 15 points, Milos Uzan with 12, Le’Tre Darthard with 11, and Sam Godwin adding 10.

It was a physical game for both teams, but the Sooners showed grit down the stretch. Uzan mentioned that they seem to be meshing at the right time. Last season, they struggled to close out games, but their ability to seal the victory against Iowa State was a sign of their improvement.

The Horned Frogs will take on Oklahoma tonight in the Schollmaier Arena. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. and can be streamed on ESPN2.
