    GoFrogs: TCU Falls at No. 24 Texas Tech
    LUBBOCK, Texas – Cold shooting and turnovers plagued the TCU men's basketball team, falling at No. 24 Texas Tech 88-42 on Monday night inside United Supermarkets Arena.

    Texas Tech (13-11, 4-7 Big 12) began the game with a 19-4 run over the first 8:48 of the game, holding TCU (16-8, 7-4 Big 12) to a 2-of-13 (15.4 percent) start from the floor and forcing seven turnovers during that span. The Red Raiders coupled their strong defense with a hot start on offense, connecting on nine of their first 12 attempts from 3-point range. TCU trailed 45-20 at the half.

    TCU's offensive struggles carried into the second half. The Horned Frogs were held without a field goal from 16:51 to 6:47 in the second half, missing eight straight shots over that stretch. The Frogs shot a season-low 26.7 percent from the field while Texas Tech shot 60.4 percent, including 13-of-22 from 3-point range (59.1 percent). TCU committed 20 turnovers, while Tech had six.

    Jaire Grayer was the only TCU player in double-figures, leading the way with 10 points. Kevin Samuel added seven rebounds and a pair of blocks.

    Jahmi'us Ramsey and Davide Moretti led Texas Tech with 17 points each.
