TCU travels to SMU tonight

TCU travels to SMU tonight

The TCU men’s basketball team will travel to Dallas for a matchup with metroplex rival SMU, looking for a bounce-back win tonight.

A win would give TCU 11 non-conference victories in the regular season for the first time since 2000-01 (11-3).

The Frogs lost 83-73 to No. 13 San Diego State Saturday night in San Diego.

TCU (13-9 overall, 3-4 Mountain West) currently sits sixth in the Mountain West standings. They are three games behind the Aztecs, who are leading the conference and moved up four spots to 13th in the Associated Press poll.

Senior point guard Hank Thorns has made at least one 3-pointer in 10 consecutive games, a career-long streak that ranks as the third-longest active streak for all Mountain West players.

Freshman point guard Kyan Anderson scored a career-high 22 points in the loss to San Diego State.

Anderson, who is averaging 11.4 ppg since the start of conference play, is the only freshman ranked among the league’s top-20 scorers (No. 13) in Mountain West action.

A win tonight would be the Frogs’ second straight over the Mustangs. TCU beat SMU 84-64 last year in Fort Worth.

SMU leads the all-time series 101-85.

SMU enters tonight with a 10-13 record overall and a 2-7 conference record, placing them last in Conference USA. The Mustangs have lost five in a row, including a 59-52 loss to the University of Central Florida Saturday.

Marcus Jordan, the son of seven-time NBA Champion and current Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, scored 17 points to lead the Knights to the win.

Senior forward Robert Nyakundi leads the Mustangs with 15.5 points per game and a team-high 5.1 rebounds per game.

TCU’s battle with the Mustangs will be the Horned Frogs’ last non-conference game of the year before finishing out the regular season against Mountain West competition.
