Texas 59, TCU 46

"We were obviously outplayed tonight. We had a lot of our players struggle tonight. I’m not sure why, but we got off to such a horrendous start. We fought back and that was the highlight of the night, but how we dig ourselves that big a hole is a big question mark. I thought we had decent looks early in the game and just came out really, really cold. It seemed to where it wore on us a little bit but then we bounced back. When you dig yourself that big of a hole, your margin of error is slim. Rebounding continues to be a problem for us. We got very little production out of our forwards tonight. That is the second game in a row against Texas that we have gotten zero production out of those forwards. You are not going to beat them that way because their strength is in their four’s and five’s, and in their rebounding."
On what Texas did differently in the last 12 minutes after TCU went on a hot streak:
"I thought their defense got better down that stretch. [Empress] Davenport played really well tonight. She knocked down some timely shots. We were putting more emphasis on [Chassidy] Fussell, [Imani] McGee-Stafford and Nneka [Enemkpali], but I thought Davenport hit some timely shots. [Celina] Rodrigo doesn’t score a whole lot, but she has a decent stat line for her five assists. I thought their players that normally don’t put up big numbers were able to have a nice night for them."
On his freshmen talent:
"In our case, I think Kamy Cole has had great growth. Zahna Medley had a tough night tonight, but we have asked her to do an awful lot all year. We have to give her a little help. I have been pleased with our freshmen as well."
