Two games, two TCU victories. A rather sudden impact for Horned Frogs forward Amric Fields.

Fields, in his second game returning from a severe knee injury, hit a jump shot and two free throws in the final 9.9 seconds to lift TCU to a 73-70 win over Alaska-Anchorage in the Great Alaskan Shootout in a game that tipped off in the wee hours of Thanksgiving morning CST.

The Seawolves called a timeout after Fields made his free throws with 2.6 seconds remaining, but Brian McGill missed a 3-pointer as time expired.

Fields, a 6-foot-9 junior, finished with 16 points in just 19 minutes for TCU (3-2) and point guard Kyan Anderson had 17, going 4 of 7 from 3-point range to lead four Horned Frogs in double figures. Guard Jarvis Ray had 15 points on 7 of 17 shooting.

Travis Thompson scored 19 points for tournament host Alaska-Anchorage (0-1), an NCAA Division II team, and McGill had 16.

TCU trailed 35-33 at the half.

The Horned Frogs won 64-62 Sunday at Washington State in Fields’ first game back.

For all of Fields’ heroics, Anderson, the junior from North Crowley High School, was the player of the game.

Anderson had a season-high nine assists, including one on the go-ahead bucket by Fields, and scored seven consecutive points in a second-half stretch.

Freshman Karviar Shepherd led TCU with 12 rebounds. Fellow freshman Brandon Parrish had 11 points, including a key basket in the late comeback.

The Frogs play Tulsa at 8:30 p.m. Friday CST in their second game in Alaska.
