TCU 85 @ WEST VIRGINIA 86 (OT)
They keep getting close, but eventually TCU has to get to the point where they know close only counts in horseshoes and… well, you know.
This one had to feel like a bomb, and the Horned Frogs were oh so close to knocking off one of the many powerful Big 12 opponents on their own home floor. And it looked like they had it when Trey Zeigler’s shot with three seconds left gave TCU a 85-84 lead over West Virginia in Morgantown. But the Frogs began celebrating too quickly, which allowed the Mountaineers to get the ball quickly up the floor enough to force TCU to foul, and Jevon Carter hit two free throws with a second left to allow West Virginia to escape with the win.
It wasn’t just a game TCU had with seconds to play. The Frogs had had led for almost the entire overtime and had a five point lead with less than a minute and a half to go before three-pointers and free throws got them. West Virginia hit six free throws in the final 1:39, plus two three pointers from Daxter Miles Jr, including the one that gave the Mountaineers the lead with 11 seconds to go, setting up the craziness that followed.
