FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Hank Thorns scored eight of his 32 points in overtime for TCU, which overcame an 18-point deficit for a 102-97 victory over No. 11 UNLV on Tuesday night.

It was the first win for TCU (15-10, 5-4 Mountain West) over a ranked team since February 2007.

The Horned Frogs hadn't led since the opening minutes of the game when Thorns started overtime with a layup to make it 87-85, and they didn't give the lead up. Thorns made his eighth 3-pointer with 1:21 left, dribbling through a couple defenders and shooting over another one to make it 96-91.

Thorns led five players in double figures for TCU, which won its seventh straight home game.

Mike Moser had 22 points and all five starters scored in double figures for UNLV (22-5, 6-3).
