Texas vs TCU Game Preview
Why TCU Will Win
The Horned Frog defense has to take over right away.
There might not be a whole lot of scoring punch or consistency, but the defense has a way of slowing things down to its pace and then stuffing teams from the outside.
Texas is on a bit of a slide losing two of its last three games and needing overtime to get by Oklahoma. Its offense isn’t going off – it couldn’t hit a thing against the Texas Tech D – and it’s getting hammered way too hard on the boards.
TCU is solid on the offensive glass, but …
Why Texas Will Win
TCU gets a whole lot of offensive rebounds because there’s a whole lot of misses.
The offense struggles to get to 70 points when it’s not owning the free throw line. It needs to attack the rim and hope for a whole lot of chances on the line.
Texas won 73-50 in the first meeting because TCU couldn’t do anything from three and hit just 12-of-21 chances on the free throw line.
One good Texas offensive burst at home should be enough to end this.
What’s Going To Happen
Can TCU generate any semblance of a scoring burst?
It’s a decent road team because its defense travels, but it’s too mediocre on the line and too bad from three to keep up after Texas gets out to a first half lead.
