The Cowboys have had a tough go at it in the last few weeks, currently in the midst of their longest losing streak in program history. They’ll try to end the streak at eight against a TCU squad (KenPom No. 41) that is starting to figure things out tonight in Gallagher-Iba Arena.

TCU is looking to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive by rebounding from a loss to OU on Saturday. They’re averaging 75.7 points per game and shooting a pretty good 46.1 percent from the field. From beyond the arc, the Frogs are averaging 34.6 percent this season. They’ve were looking really good before two straight losses to Kansas and as I mentioned earlier, Oklahoma. Desmond Bane will be someone to watch from the field as he’s currently shooting 49.1 percent. Kendric Davis is another one as he’s shooting 44% from the field.
Three Things to Watch For:
How much more can this team do? With the three juniors on the floor for much of the game against Texas, you have to wonder how much more they have in them.
Coach Boynton isn’t going to let his team give up. He’s said before “Whatever it is that makes people give up, I don’t have it.”
The fans seem to be done with this season. if no one shows up, how will that impact the Cowboys and their willingness to play? It has to be hard to play for basically an empty arena.
