Nembhard is the largest usage player for the Frogs, averaging 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game. He has started all 26 games played in purple and white this season, but missed the last contest in Ames against Iowa State, a 65-59 loss to the Cyclones.
TCU basketball update: I'm told RJ Nembhard is not expected to practice today. He'll be a game-time decision on Saturday. Francisco Farabello (concussion) is making progress, but will not play on Saturday.— Drew Davison (@drewdavison) February 28, 2020
Although the Bears are certainly the favorite today, being without Nembhard would put TCU in an even deeper hole ahead of a big game that should have a nice crowd. Right now the Frogs are a 7.5 point underdog at DraftKings Sportsbook, but that might move even more once the stats of Nembhard is determined today.
