The TCU Horned Frogs come into this one looking to rebound from an 81-77 OT loss to Cincinnati last time out. Emanuel Miller leads the Horned Frogs in scoring and rebounding with 16.6 PPG and 5.8 RPG along with 2.9 APG while JaKobe Coles has 10.5 PPG with 4.9 RPG and Jameer Nelson Jr. has 11.1 PPG with 3.4 APG.

Avery Anderson III also has 9.2 PPG with a team-high 3.8 APG to lead the Horned Frogs in the assist department so far this year.

Iowa State vs. TCU Prediction

I’m on TCU here. Iowa State’s had the same issue as a few Big 12 teams so far this season, and that’s the inability to carry their strong home form out onto the road. TCU has already picked up a pair of quality wins at home this season and I think this ends up being another one for the Horned Frogs. Give me TCU and lay the points.
