TCU Horned Frogs
TCU was only a game better than every Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State but that game was a big one because it put the Horned Frogs in the five-seed and earned them a first round bye, the first in school history.
The winner of this game will go on to play either Kansas or Oklahoma State. It’s no guarantee that Kansas will beat the Cowboys, who beat it both times in the regular season.
The Jayhawks are also playing this tournament without their lone big Udoka Azubuike, who is out for at least the week. That means if TCU can win this game it will either get the 8-seed or a weakened KU side.
TCU finished the season at exactly 40 percent from three-point range. Desmond Bane led the way in that department at over 47 percent. Kouat Noi hit over 43 percent and both of those guys led the team in attempts.
Kansas State Wildcats
In the regular season, Kansas State beat TCU at home by five and lost by seven on the road. The third game on a neutral floor should be even closer.
Kansas State doesn’t shoot the three at quite as good of a clip as the Horned Frogs but it has just as many guys who will shoot it from out there and do it proficiently.
All of the top-five scorers on the KSU squad shoot at least 33.3 percent from three and those are the guys playing the majority of the minutes. Only two other Wildcats averaged double-figure minutes per game in the regular season and it will probably be even less in the postseason.
CBB Betting Trends:
- TCU are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
- TCU are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. Big 12.
- Over is 7-3 in KSU last 10 neutral site games.
- Head to Head: TCU are 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
- Head to Head: Under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
