TCU fell behind by 23 points less than 13 minutes into the game and lost to Ivy League power Harvard 71-50 in the championship game of the Great Alaska Shootout that ended early Sunday morning CST.

The Crimson (7-1) raced to a 33-10 lead with 7:31 remaining in the first half and maintained that lead at intermission with a 48-23 advantage.

The game proved costly for TCU. Junior forward Amric Fields, in his fourth game since returning from 2012 knee surgery, suffered a broken hand and will be sidelined two to six weeks, coach Trent Johnson said late Sunday.

Johnson said freshman forward Brandon Parrish suffered a sprained thumb in the game and is day-to-day.

Fields played only 14 minutes, scoring two points. Parrish played only two minutes.

Kyan Anderson led all scorers with 20 points for the Horned Frogs (4-3). Jarvis Ray added another 13 points. TCU struggled from the field, connecting on just 14 of 56 shots (25 percent) as the Horned Frogs’ four-game winning streak ended.

Laurent Rivard drilled four 3-pointers in the first 13 minutes of the game to spark Harvard.

Rivard, who became the all-time Harvard leader in 3-point shooting by drilling five 3-pointers against Wisconsin-Green Bay in the semifinals, was 5 of 11 from behind the arc against the Horned Frogs and finished with a team-high 15 points.

Sivani Chambers added 10 points for Harvard, and Jonah Travis and Evan Cummins came off the bench to add 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Fields had scored 16, 16 and 17 points in his first three games since returning from knee surgery in December 2012.

TCU’s next game is Thursday at Mississippi State.
