FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Emanuel Miller had 20 points with 10 rebounds, and No. 18 TCU extended its winning streak to nine games with a 103-57 victory over Central Arkansas on Wednesday.
Mike Miles Jr. added 21 points as the Horned Frogs (11-1) hit triple digits in scoring for the first time since a 100-63 win over Tennessee Tech on Nov. 13, 2017. Damion Baugh had 13 points, while Shahada Wells and JaKobe Koles each had 12.
TCU, which outscored the Bears 40-0 on fast-break points, hit the century mark on Eddie Lampkin's layup with 3:37 left that made it 100-56.
Eddy Kayouloud had 14 points and Carl Daugherty 10 for Central Arkansas (5-8), which shot a season-low 29% (20 of 69) while losing its fourth game in a row. Masai Olowokere had seven rebounds.
Baugh started and ended a 15-0 run for the Frogs midway through the first half.
Just moments after tumbling over a courtside table going for a loose ball, Baugh hit a 3-pointer for a 21-13 lead before UCA missed a shot. Shahada Wells grabbed that rebound and made a court-length pass to Baugh for a breakaway dunk.
Another breakaway basket by Baugh, a layup after Miller's defensive rebound and assist, capped the spurt and put the Frogs up 33-13 with 7:54 left until halftime.
Two more fast-break baskets by Baugh extended TCU's lead to 59-30 before the first media timeout after halftime.
The Bears then hit three consecutive 3s in a 71-second span, the first by VJ Reeves before two by Olowokere. That cut the deficit to 20, but they never got closer.
Central Arkansas: The Bears fell behind for good when TCU got out on the break early. Kayouloud made an 3-pointer for a 5-4 lead, but the Frogs then had 10 fast-break points in a 14-3 run over a 4 1/2-minute span. Central Arkansas made its first two shots of the game, then made back-to-back shots only once more before halftime — while missing at least four in a row four times.
TCU: The Frogs, in their final tuneup before Big 12 play after a week off since a 75-71 win at Utah, matched their longest win streak since winning nine in a row in the 2018-19 season. Miller had another standout game, following his season-high 21 points against the Utes that made him the current Big 12 player of the week.
Central Arkansas plays its fifth consecutive road game, in its ASUN opener Saturday at Kennesaw State.
TCU is home for its Big 12 opener Saturday against Texas Tech.
