MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — TCU’s Jamie Dixon and his team came to Morgantown needing to take care of business.

The Horned Frogs failed, falling to West Virginia 104-96 in a triple-overtime thriller behind standout performances from Derek Culver and Jordan McCabe on Tuesday night to soften their bubble.

The possible bursting of the Horned Frogs’ (18-10, 6-9 Big 12) NCAA Tournament bubble came with four seconds remaining in regulation, when West Virginia’s McCabe picked the pocket of TCU’s Desmond Bane with the game tied at 68-68.
