Frogs get vital overtime win over Kansas State, 86-80
The Horned Frogs snapped a season high four-game losing streak with an 86-80 overtime win against Kansas State in Manhattan, Kansas Wednesday night. TCU improved to 15-7 overall and 4-5 in the Big 12.
The victory was TCU’s first win over the Wildcats in Manhattan since March 10, 1999 when the Frogs posted a 72-71 victory. Wednesday’s win boosted TCU head coach Jamie Dixon’s record to 18-8 all-time overtime games.
“The seniors had never beaten K-State, never won here, and we hadn’t beaten K-State in 19 years,” Dixon said. “All year we’ve been talking about doing firsts this year in our program’s history, and this is a huge win for us and huge win for our program.”
The Horned Frogs snapped out of their shooting slump Wednesday, hitting 10 shots three-pointers, which is tied for the most this season after making 10 against Bradley on Dec. 21, 2016.
TCU had six players score in double-figures for the second time this season, their first since the opening game of the season in a 82-64 win over St. Thomas. Read More
