TCU cruises to 98-62 win over Alabama State

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Desmond Bane scored 19 points, Jaylen Fisher had 13 points with eight assists, and TCU cruised to a 98-62 win over Alabama State on Monday night.

TCU (2-0) has easily won its first two games under coach Jamie Dixon, who returned to his alma mater earlier this year after spending 17 seasons at Pittsburgh, including the last 13 as head coach.

TCU gave up just 15 points in the first-half to Alabama State (0-2), taking control early with an 8-0 run that gave the Frogs a cushion they never would relinquish. Eleven players saw the court in the first half for TCU, which closed with an 18-2 run over the final 4:10 to go up by 32 at the break.

TCU's JD Miller added 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting. TCU maintained at least a 30-point lead throughout the second half.
