TCU (11-6, 3-3) struggled early, connecting on just 3 of its first 14 shot attempts, while five Frogs picked up two fouls apiece in the opening 20 minutes.
Trailing by as many as 22 points, the Frogs twice trimmed the deficit to 12. But the Cyclones answered each run with 3-pointers, connecting on 8 of 13 attempts in the second half.
The Frogs remain on the road to take on Oklahoma State at 2 p.m. Saturday in Stillwater.
