Score Limit 70
TCU has held 11 of its last 12 opponents to 70 points or less. The only team over that stretch to score more than 70 was BYU on Jan. 10.
From Nov. 24 through Jan. 6, the Horned Frogs limited 10 consecutive teams to 70 or under. It was the first time a Frog team accomplished that feat since the 1986-87 season, when TCU held 13 opponents in a row under that total (Jan. 7-Feb. 21, 1987).
Tough Early Slate
Entering this year, TCU's had an all-time combined record of 14-29 (.326) against its first five MWC opponents - New Mexico, Utah, BYU, Colorado State and UNLV. However, the Horned Frogs have won two of the four games thus far this year.
Needing Some Shots to Drop
TCU shot 48.2 percent (41-of-85) from the floor during the team's 2-0 start to league play, but has made just 35.3 percent (42-of-119) of its shots in its two consecutive losses.
The Frogs were 35-for-45 (.778) from the free throw line in the wins and 30-for-56 in the two losses (.536).
The Horned Frogs Against the Runnin' Rebels
UNLV leads the all-time series 6 games to 1 and has won two consecutive contests.
The seven previous meetings have been determined by 54 total points, an average of 7.7 per contest.
UNLV swept the season series last year, winning by 13 points in Fort Worth and by 11 in Las Vegas.
Fathers and Sons
Both head coaches in tonight's game, TCU's Neil Dougherty and UNLV's Lon Kruger, will be coaching their sons, who are senior point guards on their respective teams.
In addition, TCU Director of Operations Sean Woods is the father of Horned Frog freshman guard Martiese Morones.
Kevin Langford has reached double figures in seven straight contests, and is averaging 14.4 points per game over that stretch.
In addition, he has averaged 6.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 blocks over those six contests. Over that time, he leads the team in points and rebounds, while ranking second in both assists and blocks.
