FORT WORTH, Texas -- Freshman point guard Jaylen Fisher led a balanced attack with 13 points and TCU bounced back from its first loss under new coach Jamie Dixon with a 72-63 victory against Wofford on Saturday.JD Miller was another of five players in double figures with 12 points for the Horned Frogs (9-1) in the first meeting between the schools. Dixon improved to 3-0 against the Terriers after beating them twice in 13 years at Pittsburgh.Brandon Parrish had two 3-pointers for all six of his points, the first giving the Horned Frogs their first double-digit lead midway through the second half and the other ending an 8-0 run that got the Terriers within three points in the final two minutes.Fletcher Magee scored 18 points for Wofford (3-7), a four-time qualifier for the NCAA Tournament since 2010 but winless in seven tries against Division I teams this season.TCU, coming off a 74-59 loss at crosstown rival SMU that included a 30-12 edge in free throws for the Mustangs, had 20 free throws to none for the Terriers in the first half. The Horned Frogs finished with a season-high 41 to eight for Wofford but shot just 59 percent from the line to help keep the Terriers close.Kenrich Williams had his fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 rebounds for TCU and Vladimir Brodziansky had 10 points and eight rebounds. Desmond Bane scored 10 points.BIG PICTUREWofford: The Terriers have been competitive in most of their losses, a solid sign in pursuit of another Southern Conference tournament title that would secure another trip to the NCAAs.TCU: Dixon wasnt happy with SMU being more aggressive and getting more free throws. His players answered with strong moves to the basket that resulted in plenty of trips to the line.UP NEXTWofford: The Terriers play Austin Peay at home Thursday followed by road games at Coastal Carolina (Dec. 19) and Georgia Tech (Dec. 22) before conference play starts Dec. 31 at home against Mercer.TCU: After an eight-day break, the Horned Frogs have two more tuneups before the Big 12 opener against No. 3 Kansas at home on Dec. 30.

Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- With an anemic offense and a depleted defense, the reigning Super Bowl champs find themselves in a peculiar position: looking up at both Oakland and Kansas City in the AFC West.The Broncos 6-3 record would be good enough to lead five other NFL divisions.Yet, their 30-20 loss at Oakland on Sunday night dropped them behind both the Raiders (7-2) and Chiefs (6-2) in the division theyve owned since Tim Tebow was running the read-option in Denver and not the bases in the desert.Theyre battered, too.Defensive end Derek Wolfe suffered a fractured right elbow, middle linebacker Brandon Marshall wasnt quite himself after returning from a pulled hamstring and cornerback Aqib Talib stayed home after getting a cortisone injection in his lower back.Talib said he was feeling better, but the Broncos might want to keep him out of next weekends game at New Orleans, too, so they can take advantage of the bye week and get him ready to return Nov. 27 against Kansas City.We know were in a decent position right now, defensive end Jared Crick said. By no means is the sky falling on us.The Broncos have lost three of five for the first time since the first month of the 2012 season when Peyton Manning was getting a feel for his new team and his post-surgical throwing arm.Theyll learn over the coming weeks whether their latest loss was a speedbump or something much bigger. But getting outgained on the ground 218 yards to 33 shows they were dominated in the trenches, the fulcrum of any football teams fortunes.Weve just got to find a way to stay on the damn field, coach Gary Kubiak said Monday.He didnt pin the blame on any one player, but did say the solution wasnt swapping quarterback Trevor Siemian, who took some more big hits, for backup Paxton Lynch.No, I feel really good about what Trevors doing, Kubiak said. But Trevors like any other player. Trevors got to get better. So, were looking at it as a group. Ive got to do a better job for Trevor and (quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp) and (offensive coordinator Rick Dennisonn) do.ddddddddddddUp front, weve got to do a better job and we can help Trevor running the ball. But hes making a lot of plays. He got us back in the game with a tremendous play to Jordan (Norwood), so hes doing some good things, Kubiak said. But like all of us, like I said, were looking to be more consistent.The only consistency the Broncos offense has displayed is a season-long trend of playing poorly in the first and third quarters.Heres how their scoring has broken down:First quarter: 16 points.Second quarter; 77 points:Third quarter: 20 points.Fourth quarter: 101 points.The first and third quarters are essentially scripted. Like all teams, the Broncos use their best plays, the ones theyve refined all week at practice, to start the game. Then, at halftime they make their adjustments and dig into the playbook to come out with a counter-punch.Exacerbating matters is that the Broncos have given up points on their first defensive series seven times in nine games, so theyre playing catch-up from the get-go.Yeah, its a concern, Kubiak said. Its a big concern.Kubiak insisted its not a matter of having the wrong players for the right scheme or vice versa.I think weve got the guys. We just need to stay focused on what were doing. I believe in our people. I believe in what were doing, Kubiak said. Its been good enough six times and not good enough three times. So, I stay focused on that. Theres a lot of football left to play. We just need to keep battling.Getting trounced in the trenches was a blow to the Broncos pride.I mean, you cant really wash it away because its on paper now. But at the end of the day, were not down on ourselves, defensive tackle Sylvester Williams said. Weve got to go out there and have a big week this week.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
