FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Garlon Green scored 20 points and TCU held on for a 62-55 upset of fifth-ranked Kansas on Wednesday night for the Horned Frogs’ first Big 12 victory.

The Jayhawks (19-3, 7-2 Big 12), coming off a loss four days earlier against Oklahoma State, have their first losing streak in more than seven years. They had played 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses, the longest active streak in NCAA Division I.

TCU (10-12, 1-8) never trailed in the game, which marked the midpoint of its conference schedule in its first Big 12 season, also the first season for new coach Trent Johnson.

Kansas, which has won or shared 12 of the 16 regular-season Big 12 titles since the league started, didn’t score its first points until more than 7 minutes into the game. The Jayhawks finished with their fewest points in nearly six years.
