The Horned Frogs were up by 13 points at halftime, but Texas rallied to tie the game at 67 on two free throws by Rice with 4:39 to play. After three more ties, Marcus Carr canned a 3-pointer with 1:01 remaining to put the Longhorns ahead 76-73.

Emanuel Miller’s layup with 37 seconds left cut TCU’s deficit to one point, but he missed a free throw that would have tied the game and Rice grabbed the rebound. The Longhorns ran the clock down to 8 seconds and Carr missed a shot, but Rice nabbed the offensive rebound, was fouled and made two free throws to put Texas up by three points.

Rice made one of two free throws with 1 second remaining to ice the game.

The Longhorns found enough swagger in a 7-0 run to close to within 11 points on a putback dunk by Disu with 1:04 remaining. The Horned Frogs closed the impressive half with a layup by Eddie Lampkin after an offensive rebound and enjoyed a 42-29 lead at the break.
