    Bradley's 15 Points Leads Horned Frogs Past Cornell
    FORT WORTH – TCU senior Jaycee Bradley drained five three-pointers on the way to helping lead the TCU Horned Frogs to a 59-49 win over the Cornell Big Red, Sunday afternoon at Schollmaier Arena.

    Bradley and Kianna Ray knocked down back-to-back three-pointers to give TCU an early 8-0 advantage and the Horned Frogs never looked back, leading all the way to a 10-point home victory.

    Cornell cut what was once a 15-point deficit down to three points, trailing 49-46 with 5:37 left to play, but Ray drained a three-pointer at the other end and that proved to be the dagger. The Big Red got it back to down to a four-point deficit in on its next possession, but TCU closed out the final 3:22 of the game on a 7-1 run.

    Bradley led the Frogs with 15 points and Ray added a season-high 14 points. Lauren Heard notched her second-straight double-digit effort with 13 points.

    Ray led the team on the boards with nine rebounds, Heard led the squad with four assists and Yummy Morris tallied a career-high four blocks.

    STAT OF THE GAME
    0 – TCU held Cornell's leading scorer, Samantah Widmann, to zero points on the day. Widmann averaged 10.8 points per game last season and came into Sunday's game having scored 22 points in Cornell's season-opener on Friday.

    QUOTE OF THE DAY
    TCU Head Coach Raegan Pebley

    "We had a strong start. We took care of the ball. [Cornell] is a team that last year, forced multiple teams to over 30 turnovers. I think their high was forcing 38 turnovers. They change their defenses up a lot. I that was a positive for us today. It was a physical game and I liked how we embraced the physical play."

    UP NEXT
    TCU will close out its season-opening three-game home stand this Thursday, Nov. 14, hosting Nicholls State. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. at Schollmaier Arena.
