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.

Defining Moments
Baylor started the game on a 13-0 run and TCU could never climb out of the hole. The Frogs started 0-of-10 from the floor and didn't score their first points until Ray made a 3-pointer with 4:43 remaining in the first quarter.

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.

Stat of the Game
13 -- Baylor started the game on a 13-0 run as TCU missed its first 10 shots. The Frogs got the deficit down to eight points late in the first quarter, but never any closer.

Quote of the Game
"Our two seniors are really really special women. We talk about in our program that `basketball is not who you are, it is what you do with who you are', and these two women are a lot of what our culture is about. They are two women that have a growth mindset. They have so much grit and determination. They are not the same people, or same players, now than when they came in here. They are relationship driven and they've made everybody in our program better." -- Reagen Pebley

Up Next
TCU closes its regular season with a critical game at Oklahoma State on Monday night. The Frogs will then turn their attention to the Big 12 Championships, which begin for TCU with the quarterfinals next Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.
