TCU used 13-3 first half run to go ahead of Virginia and never looked back on their way to victory.

The TCU Horned Frogs held off a Virginia Cavaliers second half comeback to win 57-55 to improve to 3-0 on the year. TCU came out with a strong first half to have a six point lead in the first half and that was even with preseason Mountain West first-team selection Hank Thorns only scoring six points and missed on all three of his three-point shots. TCU used a 13-3 late in the first half to build their lead and Virginia chipped away at the lead, but they could never overtake TCU in the second half.

In the second half, TCU needed all of the other 10 points from Thorns as the Horned Frogs were outscored 32-28 and he hit two big shots late in the game to allow TCU to hold onto victory. Thorns also led all scorers with 16 points and he also contributed with four assists.
