The TCU Horned Frogs upset the #7 West Virginia Mountaineers in Ft. Worth.  This was the first win for TCU against the Mountaineers.

Wesley Harris would start the game with a three and the Mountaineers would take an early 5-0 lead, then TCU would respond with an 8-0 run from a pair of threes.

Both teams would go back and forth until West Virginia would go on a scoring drought in the final four minutes of the half.  TCU would outscore the Mountaineers 11-2 during that period, the only points coming from a pair of Teddy Aleen free throws.  TCU would take a two-point lead going into halftime 35-33.

West Virginia’s shooting woes continued in the second half. The Mountaineers would not score a field goal until the 14:34 mark.

TCU would go on a 22-7 run in the first ten minutes of the second half and West Virginia trailed 57-40 with 9:49 to go in the game.

The Mountaineers would trail as many as twenty points before cutting the Horned Frogs to nine with just two minutes left in the game.  The Mountaineers would not get any closer.

This was an ugly game for the Mountaineers.  They got out hustled and out toughed for twenty-five straight minutes.  The lack of hustle on defense and the standing along the perimeter on offense has been the same issue in the three losses in the month of January.

This is the third loss in four games for the Mountaineers, and this was the first loss to an unranked team.

West Virginia needs to find some consistency on offense moving forward.

They Mountaineers host Kentucky this Saturday at 7 pm.
