The TCU Horned Frogs and Texas Longhorns meet Friday in the college basketball Big 12 Tournament Semifinal at the T-Mobile Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The TCU Horned Frogs are averaging 75.5 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 68 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Mike Miles Jr. is averaging 17.4 points and 2.8 rebounds, while Damion Baugh is averaging 12.8 points and 4.3 rebounds. Emanuel Miller is the third double-digit scorer and Micah Peavy is dishing 1.3 assists. The TCU Horned Frogs are shooting 29.6 percent from beyond the arc and 70.1 percent from the free throw line. The TCU Horned Frogs are allowing 31.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.

The Texas Longhorns are averaging 78.8 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 68.7 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Marcus Carr is averaging 16.1 points and 3 rebounds, while Sir’Jabari Rice is averaging 12.7 points and 3.6 rebounds. Timmy Allen is the third double-digit scorer and Tyrese Hunter is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Texas Longhorns are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 74.9 percent from the free throw line. The Texas Longhorns are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.5 rebounds per game.

The Horned Frogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Longhorns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Horned Frogs last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Longhorns last 5 overall. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The TCU Horned Frogs did beat Texas a few days ago, and I love grabbing points in a rivalry contest, but I'd need a bit more to jump in that direction. The Texas Longhorns are just the cleaner team on both sides of the ball, and win in the favorite role by an average of 13.9 points. TCU can go through offensive droughts. Give me the Longhorns and small chalk.
