Big 12 Tournament: Round 3 – ESPN
(6) TCU (21-11) vs (2) Texas (24-8)
The Horned Frogs upended the Longhorns on their home court just 9 days ago, but this one will be played on a neutral site in Kansas City.
Texas has the edge over TCU by almost every offensive metric, aside from offensive rebounding percentage.
TCU gets minimal production from behind the arc, ranking 344th in the nation in 3-point percentage (30%), which could be a key factor for them as they look to keep pace with Texas.
On the flip side, Texas ranks inside the top 20 in both offensive and defensive efficiency, presenting mismatches at both ends of the floor.
This spread is far too tight to not take the more talented Longhorns that are looking to lock in a 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament, or perhaps find a way to sneak into a 1-seed.
