Frogs Complete Comeback, Down Cowgirls 64-63​

FORT WORTH – TCU's Lauren Heard and Tavy Diggs scored 20 points each and helped guide the Horned Frogs out of a 14-point deficit en route to a 64-63 Big 12 Conference home win over the Oklahoma State Cowgirls Wednesday evening at Schollmaier Arena.

Diggs added 11 rebounds for her second double-double of the season and Heard was 8-of-11 from the free throw line – which included her game-winning free throw with just 2.9 seconds left in the game.

TCU owned the second half, erasing a 14-point deficit and then when finally taking the lead, never giving it back up. OSU lead 41-27 with 8:33 left to play in the third quarter, but Diggs and Heard managed to score 14 of TCU's final 16 points of the frame in which the Horned Frogs closed with a 16-5 run.

The Horned Frogs took a 51-50 lead into the fourth quarter and despite OSU never completely being out of it, TCU's defense did not allow the Cowgirls to retake a lead. OSU tied the game at 54-all and later 63-63, but turnovers plagued the visiting team down the stretch and TCU managed to make just enough free throws to come away with the one-point victory.
