FORT WORTH, Texas -- No. 24 TCU women's basketball struggled offensively and fell to No. 22 Oklahoma State, 71-54, at Schollmaier Arena on Wednesday.

TCU (16-7, 7-5) and Oklahoma State (17-6, 8-4) entered the game tied for third place in the Big 12 standings and they both shot 39 percent on Wednesday night. The Cowgirls, however, outrebounded the Frogs, 51-32, to come out on top in the Frogs' first home game that featured two ranked teams since 2004.

Amber Ramirez led the Frogs with 17 points and made one of TCU's three 3-pointers. TCU was just 3-of-12 from deep and just 3-of-6 from the free throw line. Loryn Goodwin led the Cowgirls with 24 points and 13 rebounds while Kaylee Jensen added 22 points and 16 rebounds.

The Cowgirls closed the game on a 16-4 run after TCU had gotten as close as five points with over seven minutes to play.

Defining Moments
After eight lead changes in the first half, Oklahoma State ended the half on a 7-0 run to take a 31-23 lead into the locker room.

Most of the second half was back-and-forth as well and TCU cut the Cowgirls' lead down to five points, 55-50, with 7:13 to go. However, from there OSU closed the game on a 16-4 run. The Frogs would make just one field goal in the final 7:13, and it came with 1:21 remaining in the game.

Stat of the Game
39 -- Both teams shot just 39 percent. The Frogs made 24-of-61 shots and the Cowgirls made 27-of-70. The two combined to make just 5-of-30 3-pointers.

Quote of the Game
"We had a great crowd and this was a big game for us. What I love about the Big 12 is that you get another opportunity at teams. For the most part of the game we held one of the best offenses in the country to 39 percent and we did some good things, but we just did not convert on our layups and missed good open looks." - Raegan Pebley

Up Next
The Frogs will play a third straight ranked team when they travel to face No. 3 Baylor on Saturday. The Lady Bears are unbeaten in Big 12 play and will have two extra days of preparation after beating Oklahoma at home on Monday. TCU and Baylor tip off at 7 p.m. and the game will air on FOX Sports Southwest Plus.
