The No. 24-ranked TCU women’s basketball team couldn’t stop the red-hot No. 3 Baylor Bears, falling 83-63 at the Ferrell Center Saturday night.
With the loss, TCU has now lost three straight games, all against ranked teams.
The Horned Frogs (16-8, 7-6 Big 12) found themselves down 20 at the half, due largely to some significant foul trouble. TCU did manage to play Baylor (23-1, 13-0 Big 12) to an even score in the final 20 minutes, however.
Jayde Woods led TCU with a career-high 14 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, while Amber Ramirez added 12 points of her own.
Never miss a local story.
Foul trouble was the story of the first half as TCU’s top two scorers, Amy Okonkwo and Jordan Moore, were only able to play six minutes combined, including none in the second quarter.
Kalani Brown led Baylor with 23 points while Lauren Cox added 16.
The Frogs look to bounce back as they host Iowa State Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
