Trevian Tennyson and the Frogs sent the Texas Tech Red Raiders back to Lubbock with an 85-78 loss. Tennyson led TCU to victory with 23 points, three rebounds and two assists.

Micah Peavy, who transferred from Texas Tech after his first year, dominated on both sides of the ball. Offensively, he put up 18 points, which included making all four shots behind the arc.

Peavy showed his defensive prowess when guarding Tech’s star player Pop Isaacs.

“Micah is a tremendous player, especially with his physicality. The pressure he put on Pop with the double team led to too many turnovers,” said Texas Tech head coach Grant McCasland.

Texas Tech had a higher shooting percentage from the field at 52% compared to TCU’s 43%, but the Frogs did not let that stop them from taking and maintaining a lead.

The key difference-maker was drawing shooting fouls in the paint and capitalizing on free throws.

TCU was hot from the free throw line throughout most of the game, outscoring Texas Tech 24-10. Tennyson, JaKobe Coles, Chuck O’Bannon Jr. and Ernest Udeh Jr. shot 100% from the line and Emanuel Miller made seven of 10.

The Frogs and the Red Raiders were in a close contest for the first six minutes of the game as there were two lead changes and four tied scores. Texas Tech started to run away with its 16-14 lead as the Red Raiders led by as much as 11.

TCU, again, found themselves in situations where they are down by double-digits, but the resilience of the team was shown by adapting and overcoming.

“We’ve played in these types of games and we’ve been through it before,” said Tennyson, “You can’t get down and sit on it because the lead will only continue to grow.”

With 5:28 left to play in the first half, a steal from Jameer Nelson Jr. led to a fast-break bucket from Peavy to put the Frogs within four of the Red Raiders. Coles continued the scoring run for TCU with a fast-break jumper after stealing the ball from Texas Tech’s Joe Toussaint.

These back-to-back points from Texas Tech turnovers kickstarted the momentum for the Frogs as they outscored their opponent by 21 in a 5-minute stretch toward the end of the first half, giving them a four-point lead.

The Horned Frogs will remain at home and take on the University of Texas Longhorns on Saturday, Feb. 3. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. on ESPN2.
