The TCU Horned Frogs (15-12, 6-8) have a BIG 10 road game against the Iowa State Cyclones (11-16, 4-10) at the James H. Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa on Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST. In their previous game out, TCU had a big win over ranked West Virginia by a score of 67-60 while Iowa State lost big to Texas Tech by a score of 57-87. TCU looks for their 6th straight win in the head-to-head series over Iowa State. Iowa State’s last win in the series came on March 10, 2017. 


The TCU Horned Frogs are averaging 65 points per game on 42% field goal shooting while averaging 8.3 3-pointers per game and adding 9.8 offensive boards. TCU is allowing 64 points per game on 43% field goal shooting while forcing 14.4 turnovers and adding 6.1 steals and 3.9 blocks per game.  The Horned Frogs are led by Desmond Bane who is averaging 15.6 points, 3.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game along with 2 other players with double-digit scoring. 


The Iowa State Cyclones are averaging 73 points per game on 44% field goal shooting heading 9.1 offensive rebounds per game. Iowa State is allowing 73 points per game on 45% field goal shooting while forcing 14.9 turnovers and adding 7.3 steals and three blocks per game. Many of these averages are much lower now without star Tyrese Haliburton is Out for the Season. Haliburton was and still is the Cyclones team leader, averaging 15.2 points, 6.5 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game.


This Iowa State team is really starting to struggle offensively without their star player Haliburton, who they lost for the year only 2 weeks ago. Iowa State is 0-10 this year when they score 68 points or less. TCU’s defense should be able to keep the Cyclones under that number. TCU has had the Cyclones number in recent seasons and they should be able to continue that trend tonight to cover the spread and possibly win outright.
