TCU Vs. New Mexico Final Score: Horned Frogs Upset Lobos, 83-64

The TCU Horned Frogs pulled of a major upset as they defeated the No. 21 ranked and Mountain West leading New Mexico Lobos. TCU and New Mexico battled out to an even first half as the two teams were tied at 38 apiece, but TCU used a big second half to outscore New Mexico by 19 points to win 83-64.

TCU was lead by J.R. Cadot who had 15 points, but this was a total team effort as six players scored in double figure on Saturday night. The three-point shot was why TCU was able to pull of this upset as they made 11-of-26 attempts while New Mexico connected on only four-of-17.

TCU's defense also held New Mexico to 41 percent shooting and the 64 points which was their third lowest scoring output of the season.

This win by TCU makes the Mountain West even more cloudy at the top and puts TCU one game out of first place with two games left.
