TCU vs Rice

TCU 65, Rice 63

  •  

HOUSTON (AP) - Garlon Green scored a career-high 31 points to help TCU hold off Rice for a 65-63 victory Saturday night.

Green, a senior, played all 40 minutes, was 10 of 16 from the field and hit three 3-pointers. Oddly, Green's previous career high also came on Dec. 22 - he scored 24 points a year ago in a win over Grambling State.

TCU led the entire second half, but the Owls (3-8) pulled within 64-63 with 13 seconds left on a layup by Julian DeBose. But TCU's Kyan Anderson made a free throw before Tamir Jackson, who led Rice with 25 points, missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Adrick McKinney added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Horned Frogs (8-4), and Connell Crossland had nine points and 11 boards.

The loss snapped Rice's three-game home winning streak against TCU, its former rival from the Southwest and Western Athletic conferences.
