Charles O’Bannon added 12 points as nine of 11 Horned Frogs scored. TCU was just 3 for 18 from beyond the 3-point arc, but made 27 of 54 shots (50%) and outrebounded Pepperdine 38-22.

Jan Zidek scored 17 points to lead four Waves (2-5) in double figures. Houston Mallette added 15 with three 3-pointers. Jade’ Smith and Mike Mitchell each scored 10; Mitchell adding a season-high eight assists.
