After a long trip to Morgantown, the TCU Horned Frogs came away with a crucial victory in the final stretch of regular season conference play.

The Frogs jumped out to a quick start, opening the game with a quick three from Jameer Nelson Jr. Playing stout defense in the early going, the Frogs translated their positive start into points as they unleashed a commanding 12-2 run in the opening four minutes and 20 seconds.

The Frogs found success in abundance against the Mountaineers, shooting a stellar 64.3% from the field in the first half, including 9-for-16 (56.3%) from beyond the arc.

TCU led by as many as 22 points.

A free throw from Micah Peavy made it 48-26 with 3:30 remaining. The Mountaineers put together a quality last few minutes and entered the half down by 15.

While TCU took a commanding lead into the second half of regulation, the overarching problem from the game prior against the BYU Cougars was tested once again–could the Frogs maintain their lead?

The game settled down and was evenly matched coming out of the break with both schools nailing shots on either end of the court. The closest the Mountaineers ever got to the Frogs was coming within 10 points, down 87-77 with 2:38 left.

While it looks like West Virginia was gaining on the Frogs, TCU saw out what was a much-needed victory in the final stretch of Big 12 Conference play.

Emanuel Miller led the Frogs with 21 points. Peavy and Nelson Jr. posted 16 and 17 points respectively, while Chuck O’Bannon Jr. was the fourth Frog in double-figures with 11 points.

With Wednesday’s victory, the Frogs now improve to 9-8 in conference play with one game remaining before the Big 12 Tournament. TCU will now travel home to square off with the UCF Knights on Saturday, Mar. 9 at 4 p.m. CST.
