TCU 102, No. 11 UNLV 97, OT
FORT WORTH, Texas — Hank Thorns scored eight of his career-high 32 points in overtime and the Frogs beat a ranked team for the first time in five years with a victory over his hometown team on Tuesday night.
TCU (15-10, 5-4 Mountain West) trailed by 18 points with about 15 minutes left and had cut that deficit by only three points 5 minutes later.
The Frogs hadn’t led since the opening minutes of the game when Thorns started overtime with a layup to break the 85-all tie.
UNLV (22-5, 6-3) had won 13 of 15, the losses by a combined four points. The Rebels were coming off a 65-63 win over No. 13 San Diego State to avenge a two-point road loss against the Aztecs last month.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Andre Young and Tanner Smith scored 13 points each and Devin Booker had all 10 of his points in the second half as Clemson ran past the Cavaliers. The Tigers (13-12, 5-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) will carry a two-game win streak into Chapel Hill, where they are 0-55.
Jontel Evans led the Cavaliers (19-6, 6-5) and tied his career high with 17 points.
