The Horned Frogs will look to end their four-game losing streak against conference opponent Wyoming(8-8, 1-1 MWC) at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
The Cowboys enter the game with confidence as they secured a buzzer-beater win last week against No. 25 UNLV, a team that has skirted in and out of the top-25 rankings early this season.
Although Wyoming is entering the game on a high, the Frogs(9-8, 0-2 Mountain West Conference) are determined to make their way back into the win column.
“We feel like we’re a better team than Wyoming,” said junior guard J.R. Cadot, who currently leads the MWC in offensive rebounds. “We lost four games, but we know that’s not our team.”
Head coach Jim Christian talked about the Cowboys’ strengths entering the game.
“They’re one of the best teams in the league getting to the free throw line by driving the basketball,” Christian said. “They’re very tough inside.”
Leading Wyoming’s offensive attack is sophomore guard Desmar Jackson and senior forward Djibril Thiam.
Jackson ranks third among MWC scorers, averaging 16.0 points per game. Thiam also averages in the double digits with 11.6 points per game.
The TCU squad is confident it can play at a high level although it has fallen short in recent contests.
“It’s up to us to turn our season around and start making a statement about our team,” senior forward Nikola Gacesa said. “We have a good team, and we need to start playing like it.”
