TCU did not have a good shooting night, only making 14 of 48 attempts from the field and shooting 28% from three.

However, the team saw success when it came to making shots from the free-throw line, completing seven of 11 attempts.

The Frogs played a physical 40 minutes of basketball against the Longhorns but fell in the second half as Texas fought their way back to come away with a 22-point win. 

Head coach Mark Campbell said Texas’ athleticism in the second half accelerated TCU’s offense, causing them to struggle to make shots as effectively as they did in the first two quarters of the game.

“Their pressure sped us up,” said Campbell. “That first half we had a lot of good ones [shots], second half we were really sped up. We needed to hit some low shots in the first half that we had really good looks at. But credit Texas, they fly around, pressure you and speed you up.”

TCU was down by six, 12-6, to open up the second quarter, with the only points scored by Sydney Harris and Aaliyah Roberson in the first quarter. The Frogs cut the deficit, adding 14 more points before the half from contributors Agnes Nnopu, Una Jovanovic, and Roberson.

Jovanovic led the Frogs into halftime down by three, 23-20, with a successful free throw attempt after a foul on Texas by Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda.

Nnopu reduced the deficit to the closest it was all night, 26-29 at the 7:39 mark in the third quarter, but Texas broke away, going on a 13-0 run.

They continued to extend the lead, leaving the Frogs behind until the 8:41 mark in the fourth quarter when TCU attempted their final push against the Longhorns.

Campbell said in recent games, it has come down to the last couple of minutes in the fourth quarter. Against Oklahoma, the team lost gas, but that was not the case in this matchup. Texas simply came out and dominated in the second half. 

“Texas came out in that third quarter and imposed their will on us, and we weren’t able to recover,” said Campbell. “That is what good teams do. It is a mark of a really good ball club as you come out at halftime, you execute and flex your muscle. We aren’t there yet, and that is part of building a program and maturing as a team.”

The Frogs scored nine more points in the rest of the period, but Texas closed out the game with the last shot put up by Mwenentanda in the last minute and seventeen seconds of the matchup.

With a quick turnaround, TCU will aim to regroup and secure a win against their next opponent, No. 22 West Virginia, who are coming off of a 65-58 loss on the road against the No. 18 Baylor Lady Bears.
