1H 9:59 (WVU leads 21-11). Quick 6-0 run forces TCU to burn a timeout. Knapper made a no-look pass to Harler for an easy finish in transition.

1H 7:55 (WVU leads 23-16). TCU came out aggressive after the timeout and started attacking the rim. Two turnovers on Tshiebwe in the last 40 seconds.

1H 3:52 (WVU leads 27-17). Mountaineers have scored just six points since the big 6-0 run, but still lead the Horned Frogs by 10.

2H 11:37 (WVU leads 60-38). Huggins and the Mountaineers ran the same play five trips down the floor and executed it to perfection every time. Both Culver and Tshiebwe are starting to take this one over, they're just too big underneath for TCU.
