Texas holds off TCU for win

BY foxsports • February 19, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Connor Lammert scored 13 points including
the go-ahead basket and a circus shot which thwarted a TCU comeback and
Texas beat the Horned Frogs 68-59 for its first road win of the season
Tuesday night.


Ioannis Papapetrou hit three 3-pointers
early in the second half and led the Longhorns with 15. Myck Kabongo
scored 12 in his third game back from a 23-game NCAA suspension.


Lammert's tip-in broke a 48-all tie to
put Texas (12-14, 4-9 Big 12) ahead for good. The Longhorns, which came
in 0-7 on the road, never trailed. TCU's last chance to tie came after
Lammert's tip-in, but Nate Butler Lind missed free throws before Lammert
scored again for a 52-48 lead.


Garlon Green had 15 to lead the Horned Frogs (10-16, 1-12), which lost their fourth straight since an upset of No. 9 Kansas.
