Coach Jamie Dixon had an encouraging word for his team on Monday, despite the Frogs finding themselves on a three-game losing streak.

“We’re getting there,” Dixon said. “For 30 minutes Saturday we looked like the team I remember from last year, but we faded down the stretch.”

TCU held a 10 point lead over Baylor at the 8:44 mark of the second half, but were outscored by the Bears 26-12 the rest of the way. The shorthanded Frogs were also out-rebounded in that stretch 12-8.

The Frogs are preparing for a road matchup with Iowa State on Wednesday – a game that will prove to be as physical as any they’ve played thus far. The Cyclones have been whistled for 100 fouls in their last four games, and were called for 21 in the two teams’ first meeting.

TCU couldn’t capitalize on those fouls, though, missing 12 of the 28 attempted. The Frogs lost that first meeting 69-67. They were also outrebounded, and allowed 12 offensive rebounds to the Cyclones.

So, on Monday TCU’s focus landed in two places: rebounding and free throws. Not to mention, reinforcements arrived on Monday in the form of Mike Miles Jr. and Eddie Lampkin.
