Frogs Lose Heartbreaker at Iowa State
Jan. 28, 2017
AMES, Iowa -- The TCU women's basketball team couldn't miss early, but Iowa State fought back and won, 72-69, after TCU attempts to tie late came up short at Hilton Coliseum on Saturday night.
The game's start was delayed by five hours after TCU (10-11, 2-8) had travel delays, but that didn't stop the Frogs from coming out on fire. TCU led, 22-8, after the first quarter thanks to five 3-pointers in the frame.
Iowa State (12-9, 3-7), however, responded in the second quarter and TCU led by just three at halftime. From that point, the two teams went back-and-forth for the rest of the night until two TCU 3-point attempts at a tie in the final five seconds came up short.
Bridget Carleton led Iowa State with 24 points, but was just 6-of-17 from the field. She hit 10-of-10 free throws as Iowa State had a huge advantage at the stripe. The Cyclones hit 27-of-29 while TCU had a good percentage, but not as many opportunities in a 10-of-13 effort.
Seanna Johnson added nine points and 19 rebounds for Iowa State. She also struggled from the field at 1-of-10.
With the shot clock off, the Frogs had to foul and Johnson made both free throws. From there, TCU missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer with two seconds left, but got the rebound and had another change after a timeout, but missed at the buzzer as well.
