TCU pulled away after Anderson drained a 3-pointer to start an 18-2 stretch which made it a 42-17 game heading into halftime.

Grambling State failed to make a field goal over the final eight minutes of the first half and didn't make one until the game was already out of hand as Freeman's layup less than seven minutes into the second half made it a 55-20 game.

The Horned Frogs comfortably cruised from there, leading by as many as 45 points down the stretch.
