    GoFrogs: TCU Win Streak Snapped at Kansas
    LAWRENCE, Kan. – TCU had four score in double-figures, but a season-high 20 turnovers plagued the Horned Frogs in a 77-68 loss at No. 7 Kansas Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.

    Redshirt freshman RJ Nembhard finished with a career-high 14 points to lead the Frogs (12-2, 1-1), which snapped a nine-game winning streak, the fifth-longest in the nation. Junior Desmond Bane finished with 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field. Alex Robinson and Kevin Samuel each scored 12 points and Kouat Noi had 10.

    TCU trailed most of the game, but stayed in it with timely 3-pointers. A 3-pointer by Noi tied the game 26-26 with 6:19 left in the first half. The Jayhawks (13-2, 2-1) then ended the half on a 14-5 run to take a 40-31 lead at the break.

    A 7-0 TCU run early in the second half, brought the Frogs to within two points, 52-50 with 12:38 to play, but the Jayhawks built a 64-53 lead, their largest of the game with 8:05 remaining. TCU fought back and after 3-pointers by Robinson and Bane, the Frogs trailed by just three points, 68-65 with 3:37 to play. However, TCU made just one of its next six shots and committed two turnovers to close the game.

    Kansas was led by junior forward Dedric Lawson, who had 31 points and 14 rebounds.
