Wyoming certainly had opportunities tonight but in the end TCU defended their home court and came away with a 62-59 win. The Horned Frogs improve to 9-8 (2-1) while Wyoming drops below .500 once again and sits at 8-9 (1-2). TCU led the entire first half and took a 36-30 advantage to the locker room. Led by Afam Muojeke the Pokes picked up their game and took a 40-39 lead with 13:50 remaining. The next eight minutes were back and forth and Wyoming held a 52-50 lead with 5:38 left.

Down the stretch Wyoming just couldn't find the magic that they used on Saturday night to slay the San Diego Aztecs. TCU jumped out to a five point lead and the Pokes slowly chipped away. In the final minute Wyoming took six shots but only hit one as TCU held on for the three point win.

This was not the prettiest of games as both teams shot below 40% from the field. Ronnie Moss showed no restraint as he unleashed 18 shots but sunk only three - all three pointers. Five free throws gave Moss 14 points for the game. Edvinas Ruzgas was impressive for the Horned Frogs totaling 22 points and hitting four treys. Bigman Zvonko Buljan pulled down a game high 12 boards.

Only two Pokes had much success shooting the ball: Muojeke put a game high 24 while Adam Waddell had 15 points plus eight rebounds. Waddell played nearly the entire for a short two minute break. Wyoming had 15 turnovers which turned into 20 points for TCU. No Cowboy had more than two turnovers. Improvement from 3pt range was shown again as Wyoming hit 6 of 14 (42%) but struggled from the charity stripe with a 15 of 24 (62%) performance.

The Pokes remain winless on the road this season. Wyoming heads back home and will host the New Mexico Lobos on Saturday at 1:30pm mst. Saturday's game is a "white out game" where everyone is encourage to wear plain white t shirts.
