Asya Busie scored 16 points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked three shots as No. 13 West Virginia held off TCU 61-57 on Sunday.

With the Horned Frogs trailing by three points with 29 seconds remaining, Busie grabbed a clutch defensive rebound and, after drawing the foul, added a pair of free throws to make it 60-55.

TCU’s Donielle Breaux missed a 3-point attempt and the Mountaineers’ Jess Harlee pulled down the defensive rebound and hit the second of two free throws to seal the victory.

Christal Caldwell added 14 points for West Virginia (22-3, 10-2 Big 12), but the Mountaineers struggled from the field, connecting on just 21 of 58 shots (36.2 percent),

Zahna Medley connected on 5 of 13 3-point attempts and led TCU with 23 points.

Breaux added 15 points on 6 of 14 shooting. The Horned Frogs (14-11, 5-8) attempted just three free throws (3 for 3).

The Frogs return home to take on Kansas State at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the annual Frogs for the Cure contest at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
