    GoFrogs: Frogs Drop Road Game to Sooners, 83-63
    NORMAN, Okla. – Oklahoma's Brady Manek scored a career-high 31 points to lead the Sooners to an 83-63 win over TCU Saturday at Lloyd Noble Center.

    Manek made shots early and often to prevent the Horned Frogs (12-5, 3-2 Big 12) from taking a lead outside of the game's opening points. He finished 10-of-15 from the field and 7-of-9 from 3-point range.

    TCU struggled offensively and defensively. The Frogs missed their first 10 attempts from 3-point range and finished 1-of-16 in the first half from deep. TCU was better in the second half, making seven of 20 attempts to finish 8-of-36 (22.2 percent) from 3-point range.

    Oklahoma (12-5, 3-2 Big 12) had little trouble scoring, finishing 53.7 percent from the field, including 61.5 percent in the second half. Behind Manek's efforts, the Sooners finished 11-of-24 (45.8 percent) from 3-point range.

    TCU, which had a season-low eight turnovers, was led by senior Desmond Bane's 12 points, five rebounds and five assists. Joining Bane in double-figures were Edric Dennis and Kevin Samuel, with 10 points each.
