The Frogs could not get momentum going on offense or defense, leading to Baylor’s takeover of the game.

Senior night for the Frogs turned blue as TCU fell to No. 15 Baylor 62-54.

Baylor’s 7-foot weapon Yves Missi led the Bears to victory as he tied Ja’Kobe Walter for team and game-leading 16 points. Missi dominated in the paint. Whenever he had the ball down low, it almost guaranteed points.

The first half was far from exciting as both teams collectively scored 50 points. JaKobe Coles’ bucket at the buzzer was the first made of 11 shot attempts from the Frogs.

Shots were not falling as TCU made zero buckets from behind the arc and shot eight of 27 in the first 20 minutes. The Frogs’ only 3-pointers made were in the second half, shooting 5-of-11.

Baylor’s Jalen Bridges capitalized on TCU’s defense leaving him open, hitting four shots from behind the arc.

Although the score might not indicate a blowout, Baylor took over the game following the half.

TCU only shot 9-of-24 from the field in the second half compared to Baylor’s 12-of-27. The Frogs went on an 8-0 run in the last five minutes of basketball but it was not enough to make up for the minutes of scoring droughts.

The Frogs did not have their best basketball on display but did beat the Bears in one statistic: free throws.

Improvement from the line has been a trend for TCU as they shot 83.3%. Jameer Nelson Jr. and Avery Anderson III made every free shot, going two of two and four of four, respectively.

TCU will travel to Provo, Utah to face the BYU Cougars on Saturday, March 2. Tip off is set for 8 p.m. CST and will stream on Big 12 Now on ESPN+
