The Frogs' offensive problems are prevalent in home defeats

On Saturday the Frogs even achieved a win of the season with Cincinnati. The script was flipped Monday with a 62-54 loss to No. 15 Baylor.

Here are three takeaways from TCU-Baylor:

Senior night fights

It wasn't the strongest performance from the TCU offense on Monday. Trevian Tennyson was among the Horned Frogs who struggled offensively against Baylor, going scoreless while shooting 0-for-8 from the field. Micah Peavy also struggled and finished the game with five points. The turnovers played a big role in the result, with the Frogs totaling 14 turnovers throughout the match.

The 3-point shots didn't fall all night as the Frogs were 0-for-8 from distance in the first half. In the end, they hit five of 19 long-range attempts.

Successful 3-point shooting was key to TCU's most recent win over Baylor on Jan. 27. The Frogs hit 8 of 20 shots from distance and achieved balanced shooting in a 105-102 win in three overtimes. That success didn't continue until Monday.

No answer for Yves Missi

In another game without Ernest Udeh Jr., the Frogs lacked size in depth when Xavier Cork was out of the game. At 7 feet tall, Baylor center Yves Missi took control of the court. Due to a size disadvantage, the Frogs were forced to play small ball and shoot from beyond the arc. Missi finished the game with 16 points, five rebounds and one block.

The future beyond this season

Since it was senior night, the Frogs' seniors were honored throughout the game for their contributions to TCU.

The team's seniors included Cork, Tennyson, Peavy, Anderson, Emanuel Miller, Essam Mostafa, Chuck O'Bannon, JaKobe Coles and Jameer Nelson Jr. While this Horned Frog basketball team still has a lot of basketball left to play this season, the Future of the program could see a change in direction due to the number of departing players.

TCU hits the road again this weekend, traveling to Provo to take on BYU. The Frogs will look to fix the offense this week before the J. Willard Marriott Center tips off Saturday at 8 p.m.
