The Horned Frogs are led by guard Desmond Bane (15.2 points per game), who scored 34 on Saturday against Texas. He's been dominant in the two games versus Oklahoma State, scoring 19 and 26.
But just because the Horned Frogs have had recent success against OSU does not guarantee they will cover the Oklahoma State vs. TCU spread in the Big 12 Tournament 2019 on Wednesday.
Oklahoma State, which has won 15 of the last 20 meetings and is 26-7 all-time against Texas Christian. The Cowboys have had a winning record in five of the past seven seasons, qualified for the NCAA Tournament 28 times, made the Final Four six times and won two national championships (1945 and 1946).
Junior forward Cameron McGriff (7.4 boards per game) is the top rebounder on the team and third in the Big 12. He's had nine double-figure rebounding games this season to go along with his scoring prowess. Junior guard Lindy Waters III (12.1 points per game) is deadly at the line and is second in the Big 12 with a 90.8 free throw percentage.
