TCU didn’t shoot that accurately from the field (42.9 percent) or the foul line (58.5 percent), but it won the game based on quantity at the line. It took 41 free throws and connected on 24, while the Terriers were just 6-of-8.
Guard Fletcher Magee scored a game-high 18 points for Wofford (3-7), while forward Ryan Sawvell added a 12-point, 13-rebound double-double.
Wofford scored eight straight points late in the game, pulling within 64-61 on a layup by forward Cameron Jackson with two minutes left. However, Brandon Parrish drained a 3-pointer at the 1:21 mark to restore a six-point lead for the Horned Frogs.
Wofford led most of the first half, grabbing a six-point advantage less than four minutes into the game and still owning a 17-16 edge at the 7:36 mark of the half. But TCU gained control with a 14-7 spurt, capped by a jumper from Brodziansky, and took a 31-26 lead into halftime.
The Horned Frogs used an 8-0 run just before the midway point of the second half to grab a 49-39 advantage with 10:07 remaining as Parrish sank a 3-pointer. They pushed the lead to 11 before the Terriers made their late comeback.
