FORT WORTH, Texas -- Edvinas Ruzgas scored 22 points Tuesday night to lead TCU to a 62-59 victory over Wyoming.
Ruzgas' layup with 4:40 remaining put TCU ahead for good at 54-52. The Horned Frogs saw a four-point lead drop to 60-59 when Afam Muojeke converted a three-point play with 35 seconds to play. But Butler made a pair of free throws with 30 seconds to go, and Wyoming missed three chances to score before time ran out.
Muojeke led Wyoming (8-9, 1-2) with 24 points. Adam Waddell had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Cowboys, who committed 14 turnovers leading to 20 TCU points.
TCU led by as many as 14 points in the first half but was ahead by just 36-30 at halftime.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
