FINAL: TCU stuns No. 5 Kansas, 62-55

TCU pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Big 12 history, knocking off the Kansas men's basketball team, 62-55, on Wednesday night at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas.

Coming into the game, TCU (10-12, 1-8 Big 12) was winless in conference play. The Horned Frogs' closest Big 12 game was a nine-point home loss to Texas Tech.

KU had just two points with 7:55 left in the first half. The Jayhawks finished with 13 first-half points (trailing 22-13), which was the lowest point total in a half for KU since at least 1988-89.

TCU led by as many as 16 (37-21) with 11:41 left in the second half.

KU made just 18 of 61 field goals (30 percent) and three of 22 from three (14 percent).

Ben McLemore led KU with 15 points, while Jeff Withey added 12.

KU (19-3, 7-2) will play at Oklahoma at 3 p.m. Saturday.

Ej is worrfffff less. I'm over him. He's done. His role needs to be limited. He officially is not worthy.

Johnson hits another three.

Yep, we are overrated.

TCU fans chanting the stupidest chant in the history of basketball.

Arch007bak

Haven't lost back to back in 7 years and it happens tonight.,$);/-

Joe Studebaker

They just ran time off the clock and we didn't catch it. Now they did.

Iamjayhawk

They are all on ecstasy!

Jhwkr542

I think it's time for EJ's patented crossover.

Marchphog88

WHAT THE HELL DOES BENCHING ELIJAH DO FOR ANYONE!?!?

TCU makes its one free throw.

Lajayhawk

TCU trying to give us the game with their FTs......

Joe Satterwhite

I honestly feel bad for EJ man

Lindhawk

Ej brain is fried. Gonna have to try something different

Tyson Ailshie

EJ has got to sit. GOT TO!

Hawkfromhays

absolute worst guy to handle the ball at the end of a game

Brian Powell in reply to Jesse Newell

yeah, don't we need a 3? he was open! ugggggggghhhhhhhh

Jerry Becker

might as well turn it over

Jhwkr542

Shades of OSU, EJ. Bench Elijah.

Ann Oneill

Ugh.. WTF?

Lurkerhawk

deja vu

Kip_mcsmithers

And turnover

Hawkfromhays

EJ just gtFo

Jace FitzGibbon

of course...elijah turns it over in a clutch possession....

Marchphog88

Yep, and that's about right.

Lajayhawk

Nice pass, EJ..........

Jesse Newell

Johnson has to shoot the ball there.

John White

Nice hustle play by Releford there.

Lajayhawk

There's AW3......

John White

This guy shoots 39%? Wow.

Joe Studebaker

Just a side note... Ku had scored 13 in first half and 37 in the second. We are playing better this half.. It isn't as bad as the score looks... We would have been up 15 at half if we scored 37 in the first half.

Micky Baker

I really hope that if you really think these things that you don't tune in on Saturday or Monday.

Kye Clark in reply to Marchphog88

Nothing is wrong with Releford. That is who he is. It's his M.O. Houdini act on the offense end AGAIN! 2nd biggest problem with this team

Brian Powell in reply to Arch007bak

add 2 to the 'turnover' column? sad trombone

Hawkfromhays

39 percent? Guess what happens here...

Lajayhawk

Hack a Shaq

Jaybate in reply to Jaybate

Elijah has probably broken his slump right here.

But next game they are going to be playing a team that has seen them go weak in the knees yet again when it comes to punking.

Jhwkr542

Why do they throw it in to the 39% guy?

Pitthawk34 in reply to Calbballer

+1

Jackoman

me too

Arch007bak

Gotta repeat an earlier post...Naismith and Allen must be rolling in their graves

Jmfitz85

tcu even tried to help us ... they failed at that and accidentally won

Danr

Get a steal and a three.... PLLLLLEEEEEZE!

Micky Baker

KU has missed a lot of shots they normally make tonight.

Tyson Ailshie

I turned it off as I refuse to watch TCU fans rush the court

Brian Powell in reply to Jesse Newell

So glad we finally woke up with 7 minutes left, and again with 1 minute left.

Micky Baker in reply to Riverdrifter

Yeah, because we act like politicians and get spoiled when we lose two in a row for the first time in 264 games, like politicians who have been in office for 30 years getting challenged.

Lajayhawk

Dumba**, you cannot set an illegal screen when you are holding the ball.....

Kye Clark in reply to Riverdrifter

"history of basketball mankind history" Um...

Calbballer

KU is not doing anything nice. What game are you watching Jessee.

Jackoman

2-3 more losses

Joey Kuebel in reply to Riverdrifter

Tryin to save whatever pride I have left... Nonetheless this one hurts bad.

Justin Daniel

Score Saturday OU 68 - KU 53

Marchphog88

Seriously, what is actually wrong with Releford?

He looks like he thinks offense is the plague.

Lajayhawk

I guess if he's gonna pick a time to hit a shot, that's not a bad one......

Jesse Newell

KU doing a nice job of extending this game. Still needs one steal.

Riverdrifter

This has got to be the worst 19-3 team in the history of basketball mankind history.

Jhwkr542

Finally. AW3 in.

John White in reply to Marchphog88

So should Self bench the entire team?

Lajayhawk

TCU helping us out and we can't freaking capitalize. On anything. All day.

Danr

that's the ball game. Coach and the team should stay on the bench and watch the frogs storm the floor.

Marchphog88

Why did Tharpe wait so long to get teh ball to McLemore?

Justin Daniel

Well be unranked after OU kills us Saturday.

Joe Satterwhite

Put aw3 in

Hawkfromhays

Whatever happened to Andrew White (the only guy who can hit a shot) getting more playing time?

Joey Kuebel in reply to Riverdrifter

That's what she said.

Jaybate

TCU has everything you need to beat KU. Three thick bigs and a point guard.

Jackoman

EJ should sit the bench alot more

Pam Goad in reply to Jmfitz85

No we didn't.

Pitthawk34 in reply to Kirkwood

NONE!

Danr

would not hurt to actually shoot a three

Marchphog88

We're about to lose to a team that airballed a free throw against us.

Calbballer

On Saturday I said KU would lose 4 games. Now it looks like five at least. No Big 12 championship. If you lose to TCU, you can't win the Big 12.

Darshana Benhur

I wish they could practice straight for 24 hours as their punishment but unfortunately NCAA doesnt allow that

John White

Air-ball on a free throw? Are you kidding me?

Lindhawk in reply to Kirkwood

None on this team

Pitthawk34

Question to ask Bill after the game...How do you expect to win games when you recruit guards like to have?

Jhwkr542

We're in desperation mode and have 3 guys on the court that are 1-15 on 3s. Where's AW3?

Lajayhawk

This last 1:30 is gonna take a while...........

Joe Satterwhite in reply to Marchphog88

Senior starting pg playing this bad? What would you do?

Arch007bak

This is on the coaches not the players

Brian Powell

EJ should've sat the rest of the first half.. that was the time to do it. He will still start.

It's also a team loss, lapses on D, and give credit to TCU for making some shots and plays. But coach wasn't helping with the ADHD subbing he does! Hate that.

Marchphog88

EJ is struggling to even run down the court with his man. I'm worried his injuries may have permanently altered his game.

Jmfitz85

at least we tried ....

Riverdrifter in reply to Lajayhawk

That's about the size of it.

Joey Kuebel

Season for all intents and purposes is over. Regroup my 8.5 inches of pride says I don't think so.

John White in reply to Danr

When a team shoots under 60% from the line, you always have a shot.

Jackoman

Releford never shoots the ball I would not play a player just for defense. This SUCKS

Kirkwood

Where is the LEADERSHIP?!!

KU can't get the one steal it needs.

Rock Chalk in reply to Chris1955

Sinking like a rock.

Jaybate

This team just found out against OSU that it isn't tough enough. That let the cat out of the bag. The skinny guys won't fight. They won't punk back. They are afraid of fighting.

Hornhawk

Ends the debate about whether this is the worst Big12 team ever.

Jayhawkinaustin

Been watching them over 40 years. Worst played game I've seen.

Code_2008

People need to suck it up, it's just a game.

Marchphog88

I refuse to get on the bench elijah bandwagon.

This is on the entire team.

Chris1955

Next week we are #15 in the country

Lurkerhawk

Where is the toughness?

Hawkfromhays in reply to Marchphog88

...then second purple team with dominate us on Mon.

Lajayhawk

EJ 1-10

Tharpe 2-11

It's near impossible to win when you have no guards.

Lindhawk

We are under selling this. This game is at the top of the worst ever!
