Brown called for the ball in another clutch situation and made a shot that kept the Wildcats dancing.
He finished with 11 points and five rebounds, so it wasn't one of his best games. But he came through when it mattered.
This was an odd game for the Wildcats. Brown didn't contribute at his normal levels, and neither did Dean Wade, who had 12 points and three rebounds. Without their stars flexing their muscles, other players stepped up.
Makol Mawien went to work in the paint on his way to 16 points and nine rebounds. Xavier Sneed contributed 12 points.
TCU fought back and threatened to win several times behind 20 points and 10 rebounds from Kenrich Williams. Alex Robinson had 16 points.
The Horned Frogs will head back to Fort Worth and await their NCAA Tournament destination.
