An 8-0 run by Shawnee late in the second half cut the Frogs' lead to 12, 70-58, with 3:15 remaining. TCU enjoyed a double-digit lead for the final 23:43 of the game.
Junior transfer Judson Stubbs registered a team-high 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting and dragged down six rebounds. Stubbs has reached double figures in each of his first two games in a Horned Frog uniform. Fellow junior transfer Nile Murry had 11 points, while senior Corey Santee chipped in 10
