Jan. 11, 2017
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Vladimir Brodziansky scored 19 points, including the go-ahead basket with 50 seconds remaining, to lead TCU to a 64-61 victory over Texas on Wednesday night.
Jaylen Fisher added 16 points and Kenrich Williams grabbed 13 rebounds for TCU.
Jarrett Allen led Texas with 18 points.
Kerwin Roach Jr. gave Texas (7-9, 1-3 Big 12) a one-point lead with a driving shot with 1:13 remaining. After Brodziansky put TCU (13-3, 2-2) back ahead, Roach missed a layup before Fisher added two free throws. Eric Davis Jr. missed a potential tying 3-pointer with eight seconds left.
TCU went scoreless for more than five minutes, and without a field goal for nearly seven, in the second half. The Horned Frogs trailed by seven with less than nine minutes remaining. Then they made a 12-0 push, including six points by Brodziansky, as Texas went scoreless for 5:33.
TCU and Texas rank ninth and 10th in the Big 12 in 3-point shooting accuracy, but both were hot in the first half Wednesday. The Horned Frogs hit 6 of 11 treys, while Texas made 3 of 6.
The Longhorns converted two straight TCU turnovers into 3-point baskets after falling behind by eight early in the game.
TCU made three 3-pointers during a 12-2 run to finish the half with a 38-36 lead.
TCU: The Horned Frogs surpassed their win total from last season with their 13th victory Wednesday.
Fisher is the highest ranked recruit ever to play for the Horned Frogs, at least according to ESPN, which listed him at No. 34. Fisher converted all four of his 3-point attempts in the first half Wednesday.
Texas: The Longhorns had won 14 straight over TCU in Austin, dating to 1987 when TCU's first-year coach Jamie Dixon was a Horned Frogs guard who contributed 18 points and nine assists, according to a team spokesman. A year earlier, Dixon drove end to end to score the winning basket against Texas, which tried to foul him along the way but could not get a call.
TCU hosts Iowa State on Saturday afternoon. The Horned Frogs are 0-8 against Iowa State since joining the Big 12 in 2013.
