Bucknell vs TCU Preview and Prediction
Bucknell vs TCU Preview
In the semifinals of the Diamond Head Classic the Bucknell Bison (5-5) are looking for a resume-boosting non-conference win over the TCU Horned Frogs (9-1).
TCU comes in winners of six straight, highlighted by last night’s 82-57 blowout of Charlotte.
Kouat Noi had 15 points, Jaylen Fisher added 14, Desmond Bane scored 10 and Alex Robinson had 11 assists, tying the tournament’s single-game record. The senior, who had 84 assists in one season at Texas A&M, has 506 at TCU — becoming just the third player in program history with at least 500 career assists.
It took Bucknell all 40-minutes to beat their first round opponent.
Bruce Moore matched his career high for the second straight game with 18 points, including the go-ahead tip-in with 1:08 remaining in the game, helping Bucknell to an 84-82 win over Rhode Island.
This matchup will be the first meeting ever between the two programs. TCU head coach Jamie Dixon is 38-5 against non-conference opponents during his tenure at the school.
TCU will win if they out-rebound Bucknell. TCU out-rebounded Charlotte 34-29 and improved to 7-1 this season and 49-13 under Dixon when out-rebounding its opponent.
