TCU puts together ‘great team effort’, snaps seven-game losing streak against Oklahoma, 82-63
The dog days are over for the Horned Frogs with a 82-63 blowout victory to begin the Big 12 Conference Tournament against Oklahoma Wednesday night. The win halted TCU’s seven-game free fall that began back on February 11.
“You know, during the stretch I felt good about this team even though we’ve had a long streak of losing some tight games I’ve felt good about it, and their attitude has been tremendous,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said.
A number of different Horned Frogs had quality showings against the Sooners.
“Alex [Robinson Jr.] was terrific, nine assists, no turnovers, and Jaylen [Fisher], they ran the team and both guys, team effort,” Dixon said. “Kenrich [Williams] was terrific and has been doing that and people are starting to realize how good of a player he is, and Vladimir [Brodziansky] let things come to him and finished on the penetration from those guys.”
Brodziansky led all players in scoring with 20 points, Williams notched a Big 12-most 14th double-double of the season with 19 points and 11 rebounds, Robinson Jr. finished with 17 points to go along with the nine assists, and Fisher finished with 11 points and four assists.
