The Jayhawks (8-2, 2-1) are coming off a disappointing 84-59 lopsided defeat to then-No. 8 Texas last week and they will be hoping to rebound very quickly after sliding three places in the latest AP Top 25 rankings on Monday.
“The message is pretty obvious: This doesn’t happen in the Fieldhouse,” Kansas’ Jalen Wilson said after the result for the Longhorns matched the most lopsided win by an opponent in the 65-year history of Allen Fieldhouse.
“This is very embarrassing. We’re a good team and today we didn’t show what we’re capable of.”
TCU (9-2, 2-1) has won five straight games heading into this one and is coming off a 67-60 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.

Heading into tonight’s game, Kansas will be seeking its seventh straight win over TCU in this head-to-head series. The Jayhawks have also won by an average of 8 points in its last six victories over the Horned Frogs, with TCU’s last positive result in the series coming on March 9, 2017.
