TCU falters down the stretch in Stillwater, loses to Oklahoma State 89-76
TCU tied Oklahoma State at 51 with under 10 minutes left in the game, but the Horned Frogs failed to leave Stillwater victorious Monday night, falling 89-76. TCU led 67-63 with 5:53 remaining, but the Cowboys went on a 12-2 run over the next two and a half minutes to put the game out of reach for the Horned Frogs.
“Everybody in the locker room is disappointed,” TCU forward Kenrich Williams said. “We knew this was a game that we should have won, and we’re disappointed.”
TCU head coach Jamie Dixon also reflected on the Horned Frog’s third consecutive defeat.
“Tight game down to nine minutes, ten minutes left,” Dixon said. “They simply outplayed us down the stretch and got a 13 point win in a game that was tied.”
The Horned Frogs have dropped nine-straight games in Stillwater with the last and only win coming more than 90 years ago during the 1924-25 season, 07-16. TCU is looking for its first win in the state of Oklahoma since a 57-54 win at Tulsa on Feb. 26, 1998.
The loss dropped the TCU to 14-6 overall and 3-5 in the Big 12, now 14-3 against unranked opponents.
TCU lost just its third game out of sixteen when out-rebounding its opponent, edging out the Cowboys 35-30. Read More
