FORT WORTH, Texas - 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.

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.

BIG PICTURE

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.
