After trailing by as many as 10 points in the second half, the TCU women’s basketball team used a 14-0 run over a span of four minutes late in the fourth quarter to topple Texas Tech, 78-70, Wednesday night at Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.
Freshman Alexandria Crain also contributed a career-high 11 points on a perfect 4-of-4 shooting, including three from beyond-the-arc.
TCU (12-4, 2-3 Big 12) found itself facing a 33-28 halftime deficit and trailed by as many as 10 points early in the third quarter. A 9-0 run trimmed the deficit to one with just over five minutes left in the quarter, but the Lady Raiders (10-6, 1-4) responded with an 8-0 run of their own just moments later to push their lead back to seven heading into the fourth quarter.
The Horned Frogs made another push in the fourth going on a 9-2 run to trim the Lady Raider lead back to two. TCU kept the pressure on Texas Tech and eventually took the lead with 4:07 left in the game on a lay-up by Adeola Akomolafe as part of a 14-0 run for the Frogs.
TCU finished with 25 assists, its second-highest total of the season, while turning the ball over just 12 times. The Horned Frog defense, meanwhile, forced the Lady Raiders into 20 turnovers in the contest.
