TCU, Ramirez Set Records in Blowout Win
Dec. 10, 2017
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The 3-pointers were flying on a record-setting day at Schollmaier Arena as the TCU women's basketball team cruised to a 112-62 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Sunday.
TCU (7-2) broke a school record and tied a Big 12 record with 18 3-pointers as a team. Eleven of those came from Amber Ramirez who broke the TCU and Big 12 individual records on her way to a career-high 33 points.
The game featured 30 3-pointers combined as Southeastern Louisiana (1-7) hit 12 itself, including 10 in the first half. The Lady Lions shooting kept the game close at halftime, but TCU outscored Southeastern 62-17 in the second half as the Lions made just 7-of-37 shots in the last 20 minutes.
Ramirez led five Frogs that scored in double figures. Amy Okonkwo had 15 points and has hit double figures in all but one game this season. Jordan Moore added 10 points and 12 rebounds for her first double-double this season and the seventh of her career. Toree Thompson (11) and Lauren Heard (10) rounded out the double-figure scoring for TCU.
TCU grew the lead to 12 points midway through the third quarter, then a 14-0 run really blew the game open at 77-53 with 1:19 to go in the third quarter. In all in the second half, TCU made 21-of-35 shots (60 percent), including 9-of-17 from long range. On the other end, Southeastern made just 7-of-37 (19 percent) overall and 2-of-15 from deep.
The Frogs outscored the Lady Lions 31-8 and 31-9 in the third and fourth quarter, respectively.
