  1. TCU defense shuts down Houston Baptist

    By Field Level Media

    TCU turned in an inspired defensive performance to stymie Houston Baptist’s high-octane system, and the Horned Frogs earned a 69-45 victory in both teams’ season opener Wednesday in Fort Worth, Texas.

    Playing without junior guard RJ Nembhard, one of TCU’s top returnees who was in street clothes due to an apparent leg injury, the Frogs relied on offensive balance to cruise past the Huskies.

    Highly touted freshman Mike Miles led the way with 13 points for TCU. Former five-star recruit and Southern California transfer Charles O’Bannon Jr. added 11 and nine rebounds, and five other TCU players notched between six and eight points.

  2. I wasn't able to see the game, but I assume the perimeter defense was more stout than what we often saw last year (as opposed to HBU just missing wide open jumpers)? If so, obviously we hope that continues in conference play.
  3. I thought the perimeter defense was pretty good, we were not giving them any open looks from the outside, especially in the first half. I was a little bit surprised that they were able to drive on Samuel in the second half.
  4. Houston Baptist not a very good team overall. I thought the Frogs offensively could have shot and played better. Miles is going to be very good. O'Bannon contributing on both ends a great sign. Not having Ledee and Nembhard a difference of course.
