What to Know
The #15 TCU Horned Frogs' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 17 at Ed & Rae Schollmaier Arena. Louisiana-Monroe will be strutting in after a win while the Horned Frogs will be stumbling in from a loss.
TCU was just a bucket short of a victory on Monday and fell 64-63 to the NW State Demons. If the result catches you off guard, it should: TCU was far and away the favorite. One thing holding TCU back was the mediocre play of forward Chuck O'Bannon Jr., who did not have his best game: he played for 29 minutes with 3-for-14 shooting.
Meanwhile, everything came up roses for Louisiana-Monroe at home against the Central Baptist Mustangs on Monday as the squad secured a 105-56 win.
This next game looks promising for the Horned Frogs, who are favored by a full 17 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-3 against the spread when favored.
TCU and the Warhawks now sit at an identical 2-1. A couple offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: TCU has only been able to knock down 39.60% percent of their shots, which is the 31st lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Louisiana-Monroe's offense has more to brag about, as they they come into the matchup boasting the 28th most points per game in college basketball at 90. Maybe that strength will give Louisiana-Monroe the oomph they need to beat the odds.
