Noi, Fisher lead TCU past Charlotte in Diamond Head Classic
HONOLULU (AP) Kouat Noi had 15 points, Jaylen Fisher added 14, and TCU never trailed in its 82-57 win over Charlotte on Saturday night in the Diamond Head Classic.
TCU (9-1), which has won six in a row, will play Bucknell in the semifinals Sunday.
Desmond Bane scored 10 for the Horned Frogs and Alex Robinson had 11 assists, tying the tournament's single-game record. The senior, who had 84 assists in one season at Texas A&M, has 506 at TCU - becoming just the third player in program history with at least 500 career assists.
Noi hit back-to-back 3s to cap an 11-0 run and, after Charlotte's Jailan Haslem made a layup, threw down a fast-break dunk and then made another 3 to give TCU a 14-point lead with 2:36 left in the first half. The Horned Frogs took a 40-26 lead into the break and led by as many as 30 points in the second half.
Jon Davis led Charlotte (3-6) with 17 points and Jaylan McGill scored 13.
