Jan. 19, 2003
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The TCU Lady Frogs (7-9, 0-3 C-USA) dropped their fourth straight game on Sunday afternoon at Freedom Hall as Louisville (11-5, 2-1) ran away with a 78-62 win. Sophomore Sandora Irvin earned her fifth double-double of the season in the loss. It is also the 14th of her career.
In the early goings of the first half, the teams were an even match, trading leads and ties throughout the first five minutes. However, Louisville went on a 9-2 run behind strong shooting from Amanda Wolke. The Lady Frogs chipped away at the lead, cutting the advantage to just three at 18-15 on a bucket by senior Candace Baldwin, but that was as close as TCU could get in the opening stanza. The Cards outscored the Frogs 14 to 5 in the final five minutes of the half to take a 43-27 lead into the locker room.
In the second half, Louisville's strong shooting continued, although TCU was able to cut the Cardinal lead to as few as eight on two occasions. The Cards refused to let the Lady Frogs any closer, pushing out to as many as a 23-point advantage with less than three minutes to play. TCU outscored Louisville 10 to 3 to finish the game, but fell short 78-62.
Home C-USA action for the Lady Frogs starts Friday, Jan. 24 for the Lady Frogs when they entertain East Carolina at 7:00 p.m. in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Charlotte will wrap up the homestand on Sunday, Jan. 26 in a game scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
