Men’s basketball prepared for San Diego

After gaining a win on the road against Wyoming, the Horned Frogs (12-14, 4-7 Mountain West Conference) hope to find success against a strong San Diego State team at home tonight.

TCU lost the away game against the SDSU Aztecs 67-62 when they met earlier this season.

The SDSU Aztecs (18-7, 7-4 MWC) are coming off a victory against conference opponent UNLV. The win caused UNLV to drop from the national rankings this week. The Aztecs also seriously challenged the winning streak of AP No. 12 New Mexico in an overtime thriller earlier this month, losing by two points.

TCU collected a win on the road against Wyoming last week. It was the first time the Horned Frogs have won in the Arena-Auditorium in Laramie, Wym.
Freshman forward Nikola Cerina led the team with a career-high 21 points. Cerina has had six double-digit performances this season.
Sophomore guard Ronnie Moss contributed 15 points and four assists. Moss currently ranks third in the nation in assists per game and said the upcoming contest against SDSU will be a difficult one.

“They are an unbelievably talented and athletic team,” Moss said. “We want to play the same way we did while we were on the road (in Wyoming), but since it’s at home, we hope to do even better.”

Be sure to watch the performance of senior guard Keion Mitchem – he needs five points to reach the 500-point milestone for his career.

SDSU’s freshman forward Kawhi Leonard leads the Aztecs with an average of 12.4 points per game. Leonard is also nationally recognized as a top rebounder.

A win for the Frogs would advance their winning streak to two, and mark their ninth home win of the regular season.
