Emanuel Miller paces No. 22 TCU in 100-75 blowout of Oklahoma State

Emanuel Miller poured in 18 points and Mike Miles Jr. added 15 in his return to the court as No. 22 TCU swamped visiting Oklahoma State 100-75 on Saturday in Big 12 Conference action in Fort Worth, Texas.

Miles returned from a five-game absence after sustaining a hyperextended knee in TCU’s loss at Mississippi State on Jan. 28. He had a huge impact on Saturday, helping the Horned Frogs (18-9, 7-7 Big 12) snap a four-game losing streak.

TCU led by 20 points at halftime after a dominating stretch late in the first half. The Horned Frogs quickly pushed their advantage early in the second half. Oklahoma State never got closer than 17 points the rest of the way, losing its second straight game after winning five in a row.

TCU’s Damion Baugh added 16 points, Shahada Wells contributed 15, Chuck O’Bannon had 12 and Micah Peavy scored 10 in the win.

Bryce Thompson led the Cowboys (16-11, 7-7 Big 12) with 18 points. John-Michael Wright scored 14 points and Caleb Asberry added 12.

The Cowboys led 19-16 at the 11:13 mark of the first half after a 3-pointer by Wright. TCU answered with a 6-0 run but Oklahoma State kept the game close when a pair of free throws by Thompson cut the Horned Frogs’ lead to 22-21.

The Horned Frogs took charge with a 20-4 run that began with 8:07 left in the first half, with the spurt capped by a free throw by Miles with 2:30 to play. Oklahoma State missed six of its seven shots over that stretch, after which it trailed by 17 points. TCU kept up its torrid pace, with a 3-pointer by Miller with 22 seconds left in the half producing a 47-27 lead at the break.

Miles led all scorers with nine points before halftime as the Horned Frogs outshot Oklahoma State 65.4% to 38.1% in the first 20 minutes of play. TCU forced 11 turnovers that it converted into 14 points in the half.

Thompson paced the Cowboys with seven points in the half.

Any thought of an Oklahoma State comeback was thwarted by the Horned Frogs 12-5 run that pushed the margin to 27 points.
