    FORT WORTH – Senior Jaycee Bradley scored a season-high 24 points and junior Lauren Heard chipped in with 21 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double to lead the TCU Horned Frogs past the Auburn Tigers, 80-65, Saturday afternoon in the Big 12/SEC Challenge at Schollmaier Arena.

    THE RUNDOWN
    TCU took a nine-point lead into the second quarter only to see Auburn come back and tie the game at 24-24. The Horned Frogs stopped the 13-2 Tiger run with a pair of free throws from Heard and then a lay-up from Jayde Woods. TCU would later score 14 straight points to take a 44-31 lead into the break.

    Auburn totaled two ties in the game at 5-5 and 24-24, but the Tigers would go the entire game without securing a lead.

    Bradley led all TCU players with her 24 points as she tied a season-high with five three-pointers made. Heard pulled down a season-high 10 rebounds and notched her first career double-double with a 21-point game.
