Oklahoma @ TCU Basketball Preview

(5-2) (4-1)

Daniel-Meyer Coliseum 7PM CT TV: CSTV PPV

So far on the year TCU has played cream puffs to get the wins and last game they played a good opponent in Texas Tech and played well and had a first half lead but faltered down the stretch. As for Oklahoma they have done the same thing as the Horned Frogs, except that they have played 2 ranked opponents in USC and Memphis which both were loses. The one spot where TCU has the advantage is in size and in rebounds as well, the Horned Frogs have a rebound edge of plus 10 over Oklahoma and TCU averages 46 boards a game and 17 of those are offensive per game. If TCU can get those same numbers with rebounds especially offensive boards that can be used for easy put backs or second chance points. Oklahoma plays a lot players and likes to rotate in multiple of players to give a new look, but TCU does the same thing so that should not be a real effect against TCU. The main player for Oklahoma is Blake Griffin who averages nearly a double double per game and is also their leading scorer. Based on talent Oklahoma should be able to defeat TCU who has not in recent years fielded a competitive team, but this year looks to be different. Look for Oklahoma to win this game unless TCU can capitalize on their rebounding advantage and get second chance opportunities.
