Frogs Fall to No. 3 Baylor on Senior Night
Feb. 24, 2018
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU women's basketball gave up an early run and couldn't recover in an 85-53 loss to No. 3 Baylor on Saturday night at Schollmaier Arena.
Following the game, TCU (18-10, 9-8) honored seniors Toree Thompson and Sydney Coleman, who played their final regular-season game at home. Amy Okonkwo led TCU with 13 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Kianna Ray was also in double figures with 12 points, including 7-of-8 free throws.
Baylor (27-1, 17-0) started the game on a 13-0 run and TCU never recovered as the Lady Bears moved their winning streak to 24 consecutive games.
With one regular-season game remaining, the Frogs can still finish anywhere from fourth to sixth in the Big 12 standings. TCU sits in fifth place, one game back of Oklahoma State, and plays on the road against the Cowgirls on Monday.
During that span, Baylor made 5-of-7 shots, including back-to-back 3-pointers that made the score 13-0. TCU cut the deficit down to eight later in the first quarter, but trailed by 11 after the first 10 minutes and never got closer.
TCU would go on to shoot just under 30 percent (16-of-54) in the game as the Baylor lead grew to as many as 34 points in the fourth quarter.
