3. As a team, TCU ranks in the NCAA's top-20 in assists (20.5, 9th), blocks (5.9, 10th), free throw percentage (.773, 12th), assist-turnover ratio (1.41, 16th) and field goal percentage (.479, 18th).
Kansas opened its season with seven straight wins, all at home. The Jayhawks nonconference losses came at home to Nebraska and at St. John's, also in overtime.
Kansas finished last in the Big 12 last season, but has a new-look roster as four of the starters against Iowa State are in their first year at KU. The lone returner in the starting lineup, Kopatich, is the Jayhawks' leading scorer at 15.3 points per game.
The Frogs swept last season's meetings with an 83-68 win in Fort Worth and an 80-68 win in Lawrence. Jordan Moore had a pair of double-doubles and averaged 15.5 points and 15.0 rebounds against the Jayhawks.
