(HOUSTON) - Senior guard J.R. Cadot delivered another huge play for the TCU Horned Frogs Saturday night, laying the ball in at the buzzer to give TCU an 81-80 victory over Houston. The win moved TCU to 4-2, ending a two-game skid. Following a TCU timeout, Cadot provided the play of his TCU career.
The Frogs inbounded the ball under the Cougar basket to sophomore forward Amric Fields, who found Cadot downcourt in front of the TCU bench. Cadot, who drove to the basket, missed the initial layup with roughly two seconds remaining on the clock. He was able to fight successfully for the offensive board and threw the ball up over his head while falling away, and the ball found the hoop as the horn sounded. Game officials reviewed the final shot before confirming that Cadot had in fact released his shot prior to the buzzer.
The basket was the second big play of the past week for Cadot, who also provided the winning points on a layup and foul shot during last Friday’s 57-55 win over Virginia at the Paradise Jam.Cadot was one of five players to finish in double figures for TCU with 11 points, while he added a game-high eight rebounds.
