FORT WORTH, Texas — Kyan Anderson scored 19 points in just 12 minutes as TCU doubled up on Mississippi Valley State 106-53 Monday night.

Anderson hit 7 of 9 shots from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range. He scored 14 of the game's first 20 points in just 6 1/2 minutes as TCU put away the Delta Devils quickly.

As a team, the Horned Frogs made their first four field goals, including two 3's by Anderson, and went on a 20-0 run early on for a 26-5 lead.

TCU shot 68.8 percent in the first half en route to a 60-20 halftime lead. The 60 points tie the TCU-Grambling State game on Dec. 30, 2002, for the ninth-most first-half points in school history. Meanwhile, Mississippi Valley State (0-4) shot 20 percent in the first half.

Devonta Abron scored 14 points, Link Kabadyundi added 12 and Hudson Price 11 for TCU, which started the season 4-0 for the first time since the 2007-2008 season.

TCU scored 100-plus in regulation for the first time since Nov. 14, 2011, against Austin College, a 103-45 win. The Frogs' 106 points were the most since a 108-99 triple overtime win over Texas State on Nov. 24, 2009. At one point in the second half, TCU had more blocked shots (11) than the Delta Devils had field goals (nine).

Jordan Washington, DeAngelo Priar and Tyler Corley, who averaged a combined 37.0 points per game going into the contest, scored 23 points altogether.


TIP INS

TCU: Anderson needed only two points to surpass Michael Strickland for No. 15 all-time in career points for TCU, but with 19 he passed Strickland (1990-92), Kevin Langford (2007-09) and Marquise Gainous (1999-2000). Anderson is now 13th all-time in scoring with 1,235 points.

Mississippi Valley State: The Delta Devils have yet to play a home game, and they won't until December 20 when they host North Carolina Central. After traveling to Indiana, Mississippi State and Tulane, MVSU is in the midst of a Texas road swing with games against TCU and North Texas before a tournament in Corpus Christi, Texas.
