The 11-4 Cowboys travel to Fort Worth to take on the 9-7 Horned Frogs on Wednesday night. Oklahoma State picked up a solid non-conference win over Arkansas 81-77 on Saturday.
The Cowboys have won four of their last five games with the only loss being to undefeated Baylor. TCU lost in overtime to No.18 Missouri 102-98 on the road on Saturday. These two teams met back on Dec. 16 in Stillwater, where TCU won 77-76 with Cade Cunningham missing a game-winning shot attempt at the buzzer. Much has changed over the past two and a half months for both clubs that should change the way this game plays out. Oklahoma State is led by Cunningham, a future NBA lottery pick who averages 18.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Cunningham returned to the floor Saturday after not playing since Jan. 12 due to COVID-19 protocols and showed no rust, scoring 21 points while hitting the go-ahead basket in the final minute against Arkansas.
The Horned Frogs are led by guard RJ Nembhard who leads the team with 16.6 points and 3.9 assists per game. Nembhard had 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting in the first matchup between these two teams. Do not be fooled by the fact that the Horned Frogs have dropped five games in a row. TCU was playing awful basketball before COVID-19 infiltrated the team and they had 16 days off in between games. Since then, the Horned Frogs have lost two hard-fought games on the road to ranked opponents, Kansas and Missouri.
