FORT WORTH, Texas —
There was a record sellout crowd of 7,412 fans in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, a large portion of them loud Jayhawks fans cheering on their team coming off the loss Saturday that ended their nation’s-best 18-game winning streak and a 33-game winning streak at Allen Fieldhouse.
But when this game ended, they were filing out of the arena while TCU students storm the court to celebrate the Frogs’ first-ever win over a Top 5 team in 21 tries.
TCU, which had averaged just under 50 points a game since starting league play, scored the game’s first eight points and led 22-13 at halftime.
Kansas shot a season-low 30 percent from the field (18 of 61) and had its lowest-scoring game since also scoring 55 in an NCAA tournament loss to UCLA on March 24, 2007.
Kansas already had six turnovers and missed its first four shots before finally scoring 7:17 into the game, on McLemore’s bounce pass to Jamari Traylor for a layup that made it 8-2.
