FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Worth Smith scored 14 points and Brandon Venturini tallied 12 points, but the Horned Frogs defeated Navy (2-3) by a final score of 47-45 Tuesday night.

Devonta Abron had 13 points and 12 rebounds in his first start at TCU.

Abron didn't attempt a field goal in the first half but then made five of six shots in the second half and was instrumental in the Frogs turning around a game with nine ties and nine lead changes.

A transfer from Arkansas, Abron led the Razorbacks in rebounding as a true freshman last season before being granted an NCAA waiver to be eligible to play this season.

TCU (4-1) has held four of its first five opponents to fewer than 50 points.
