Bane, Hot-Shooting, Lead TCU over TTU
Nov. 13, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Desmond Bane made six of TCU's 16 3-pointers while scoring 24 points and the Horned Frogs overwhelmed Tennessee Tech 100-63 on Monday night.
Five players scored in double figures for the Horned Frogs (2-0), who have a seven-game winning streak when counting their postseason run to the NIT championship last March.
After Tennessee Tech (1-1) went from a timeout to a turnover with about 5 minutes left in the first half, TCU went up 38-19. Kenrich Williams had a steal right after the stoppage of play, then Bane hit a 3-pointer after some nifty ball movement by the Frogs.
That came only a couple of minutes after Robinson feed Bane on the break for a layup, and before TCU had a 52-24 halftime lead.
Mason Ramsey, Aleksa Jugovic, Kajon Mack and Curtis Phillips each had 12 points for Tennessee Tech. Courtney Alexander had 11 rebounds.
TCU: With the starting five of Brodziansky, Miller, Bane, Robinson and Williams, the Horned Frogs have won six straight games. Fisher, who is coming off the bench, tore meniscus in his right knee Aug. 1 and was cleared to return to practice Oct. 31. The sophomore point guard was 3-of-3 on his 3-pointers, all the shots he took.
TCU plays its third home game in six days to start the season, when the Horned Frogs host South Dakota on Wednesday night.
