Two Big 12 rivals, the Texas Longhorns and the TCU Horned Frogs, face off in what promises to be an exciting and high-scoring game. The Longhorns are coming off a tough loss to Baylor, while the Horned Frogs are riding a wave of momentum after a thrilling win over Texas Tech. Both teams have impressive records, and they will be looking to secure a victory to bolster their chances of making it to the NCAA tournament.
The TCU Horned Frogs have had a strong season, with an overall record of 19-10 and a conference record of 8-8. They are currently ranked fifth in the Big 12, just behind Kansas State. The Horned Frogs also have a high-scoring offense, averaging 76.1 points per game. Senior forward E. Miller is their leading scorer, averaging 12.7 points per game, while also contributing 6.4 rebounds per game.
Another key player for TCU is senior guard D. Baugh, who is a solid playmaker and defender. He is averaging 6.0 assists per game, which is one of the best in the Big 12, and is also contributing 2.8 rebounds per game. Baugh's ability to set up his teammates will be critical in this game, as Texas has several strong defenders in their lineup.
TCU's defense has also been solid this season, allowing an average of just 67.6 points per game. They have several strong defenders, including senior guard M. Miles, who is averaging 1.9 steals per game. However, the Horned Frogs' defense has also been inconsistent at times, and they will need to step up against a high-powered Texas offense.

Another key player for Texas is senior forward T. Allen, who is a strong rebounder and defender. He is averaging 5.6 rebounds per game and has a season-high of 13 rebounds in a game.
