TCU looks to rebound after a tough loss to Baylor earlier in the week.

After a baffling performance against Baylor on Monday, the Frogs have a chance to bounce back against the BYU Cougars.

Despite BYU being one of the newest additions to the Big 12, the Cougars and the Frogs have met just 22 times. Holding a 19-3 record against TCU, BYU is 8-1 in games played in Provo. Saturday will be the first meeting between the two schools since Feb. 13, 1997.

As the Big 12 regular season slowly winds down, the games get increasingly crucial.

BYU currently holds a record of 20-8 (8-7 Big 12) and is coming off the back of a thumping 76-68 victory over the No. 7 Kansas Jayhawks at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence. That means the Cougars are flying high with loads of momentum as they gear up to face a Frogs team that has won three of its last five games.

Saturday’s date in Provo will also see one of the most prolific offenses in the nation as the Cougars lead the Big 12 with 82.6 points per game, which ranks 20th in the NCAA.

A less physical team, BYU relies on the perimeter shooting from sophomore guard Jaxson Robinson. He leads the Cougars, averaging 14.1 points per game and shoots an efficient 36% from beyond the arc. Hence, BYU ranks 3rd in the nation with 11.4 made 3-pointers per game.

In addition to their prolific offense, the Cougars are animals off the glass, averaging 36 rebounds per game–3rd best in the conference.

For the Frogs, they will have a chance to rebound after a frustrating loss to rivals Baylor.

TCU must show patience on offense. BYU is a quick, athletic team that can keep up with the Frogs’ fast break-styled offense. It’s imperative that TCU drives to the rim when possible, while staying balanced and taking shots on the perimeter.

If the Frogs fail to make adjustments as they did on Monday against the Bears, they will struggle in the hostile environment Provo possesses.

Tip-off is set for 8:00 p.m. CST from J. Willard Marriott Center in Provo.
