    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.

    JD Miller added 17 points and nine rebounds for TCU. Vladimir Brodziansky and Jaylen Fisher scored 11 points each, and Kouat Noi had 10. Alex Robinson had nine points and nine assists.

    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.

    BIG PICTURE
    Tennessee Tech: The Golden Eagles dropped to 0-8 against teams from the Big 12 in their first-ever meeting against TCU.

    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.

    CLASSIC PLAY
    The game was part of the Emerald Coast Classic that will be completed Thanksgiving weekend in Niceville, Florida. Both teams have one more game at a campus site before going to Florida. TCU is home next Monday night against Omaha, and Tennessee Tech plays at New Mexico on Nov. 21, two days before Thanksgiving.

    UP NEXT
    Tennessee Tech plays its next two games at home, Thursday against Boyce College and Saturday against Kennesaw State.

    TCU plays its third home game in six days to start the season, when the Horned Frogs host South Dakota on Wednesday night.

    Bane and Co. poised to make even more noise this year in the Big XII and beyond.
     
  4. Bane,Fisher, and Kenrich are all better three point shooters than when they arrived. A testament to their hard work and the way Dixon runs practices.
