No. 6 TCU trailed 11th-seeded Arizona State for most of the second half on Friday, but mounted a late rally to force a frantic back-and-forth finished capped by a game-winning layup with in the game's final seconds.
After TCU took a 70-67 with three free throws, Arizona State's DJ Horne tied the game at 70-70 with a 3-pointer with 15.6 seconds remaining.
But TCU's JaKobe Coles had the last word, sinking a floater in traffic with 1.5 left to give TCU a 72-70.
Arizona State's desperation heave as time ticked down missed the mark, and the Horned Frogs advanced to the NCAA tournament's second round.
