No. 24 TCU Runs Win Streak to Six
Jan. 27, 2018
FORT WORTH, Texas -- No. 24 TCU women's basketball edged out another close win and ran its winning streak to six games with a 62-58 win over Oklahoma at Schollmaier Arena on Saturday afternoon.
TCU (15-5, 6-3) shot a season-low 33 percent from the field, but played some of its best defense of the season and held Oklahoma (10-11, 5-5) to 35 percent. The Frogs snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Sooners and earned their first six-game win streak since 2010-11.
The Frogs led most of the game, but found themselves down by five points in the fourth quarter. Amber Ramirez scored all nine of her points in the final two minutes of the game, the only Frog to score during that time, and turned a tie game into a TCU win.
TCU has now avenged all three of its Big 12 losses during its six-game win streak, knocking off the Sooners, West Virginia and Kansas in the second game with all three.
Heard's 3-pointer with 2:48 remaining tied the score at 53-53. Gabbi Ortiz missed a 3-pointer on OU's next possession, and then Ramirez scored her first basket of the game to give TCU a two-point lead.
After Jordan Moore's third block of the game, Ramirez connected on her only 3-pointer to give TCU a 58-53 lead with 1:20 remaining. Ortiz answered with her own 3-pointer, then Ramirez was fouled driving to the basket. She made both free throws with 15.7 seconds left, giving TCU a 60-56 lead.
The Sooners made a layup with 8.6 seconds remaining, but on TCU's ensuing inbound play Ramirez sprint to the basket and made a layup before OU could foul her, giving TCU the 62-58 win.
