TCU 62 Kansas 55

Inside the boxscore: TCU 62, Kansas 55

1. Kansas made just 3-22 3s (14%). Surprisingly, it was not their worst 3-pt shooting night of the year. That came in the season opener when they made 2-21 vs Southeast Missouri State. The Jayhawks have now made just 32% of their 3s in Big 12 play.

2. TCU was an average Mountain West team last year, and is a bad Big 12 team this year. They began their Big 12 career with eight straight conference losses before beating Kansas. Seven of eight losses were by a margin of 11 or more points, with the lone outlier being a 9-point loss at home to Texas Tech. In conference-only games they have the worst offense and the next-to-worst defense in the Big 12.

3. The Horned Frogs made just 18 field goals. It was the third game they won while making only 18 shots. Their eFG% is 318th nationally. Kansas also only made 18 field goals, which was their fewest since making the same number vs Cornell in January, 2010.

4. TCU made 22-38 FTs (58%). While that sounds awful, it was actually right about their average. They've made 59.5% as a team this year, which is worse than all but five of 347 Division I teams. It was their most free throw attempts since taking 38 against Nebraska in November, 2008.

5. TCU won 62-55 in a 66 possession game. The 0.83 points per possession scored by Kansas was not only their lowest of the season, but the lowest since scoring 0.81 vs Missouri in 2009.
