KU finally returns to Allen Fieldhouse as the Jayhawks prepare to host the Horned Frogs of TCU.
Kansas enters the contest with a ranking of #15 by the AP, while TCU comes in unranked. KenPom has the Jayhawks at #16 and the Frogs at #93 - the highest rated of the three Big 12 teams outside the top-35 in KP. (Yes, that means the Big 12 has 7 teams in KP’s top-35.)
Kansas leads the overall series against TCU by a 21-2 count. The Frogs are winless in Lawrence with an 0-9 record. The most recent meeting between the two programs was a 93-64 KU win in Fort Worth just three weeks ago.
The Jayhawks are coming off a 75-68 road loss at Oklahoma, while the Frogs also come in off a road loss at Oklahoma, theirs an 82-46 disastrous affair.
Here are the essentials:
(15) Kansas: 10-5, 4-4 Big 12
TCU: 9-5, 2-4 Big 12
Line: KU -14.5

Given the all-time series record, it’s not surprising that Kansas has won 7-straight and 17 of the last 18 meetings against TCU.
Kansas has not lost four consecutive games since the 1988-89 season. (That losing streak lasted 8 games, including 7 conference games.)
