TCU was a 64-61 winner in its last match on the road against Longhorns. They covered the +1.5-point spread as underdogs.

Iowa State won its last outing, a 96-86 result against Cowboys on January 11. They covered in that game as a +3-point underdog.

Jamie Dixon is reviving TCU on the fly and the Horned Frogs have already surpassed last season’s win total as they enter Saturday’s Big 12 home contest against Iowa State. The former Pittsburgh coach is set on changing the culture of the perennial downtrodden program but is delivering victories at the same time.

TCU won at Texas for the first time in 30 years when it recorded a 64-61 win on Wednesday and now attempts to defeat the Cyclones for the first time since 1997. “There can’t be any hangover effect,” Dixon told reporters of the celebratory feel. “We’ve got to move on to Iowa State, and that’s what we’re going to get across.” Preparing for the Cyclones means trying to figure out how to slow standout point guard Monte Morris, who scored a career-best 30 points in Wednesday’s 96-86 road victory over Oklahoma State. “He wants to have a great senior year,” Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said. “That’s all he’s focused about and he knows that we need him at his best. And he was at his best, and we’ll need him at his best on Saturday.”
