TCU was upended by the Arkansas State Lady Indians Sunday by a 68-64 count. OU is coming off a 67-59 road loss to Tulsa Dec. 4. TCU and Oklahoma have met 10 times, with the Sooners holding a 9-1 edge in the series. OU has won eight in a row over TCU dating back to 1994. TCU's lone victory came Feb. 24, 1993, in Fort Worth by a 79-76 score. The last time the two schools met was Dec. 14, 2002, in Cowtown and it ended in a 68-64 victory for the Sooners.
TCU'S LAST TIME OUT
The TCU Lady Frogs had their five-game winning streak snapped Sunday in Jonesboro, Ark., by the Arkansas State Lady Indians. The 68-64 loss dropped TCU (6-2) to 0-4 in the all-time series with Arkansas State (3-3). Sandora Irvin finished the game as TCU's leading scorer with 17 points and she grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds. It was her 50th career double-double performance. Ashley Davis tallied 16 points, one shy of her career-high, and came away with six rebounds. Thirteen of her points came in the second half. Natasha Lacy was the Lady Frogs' other double figure scorer with 12 points. She also added six rebounds, seven assists and tied a career mark with six steals. The difference in the game was points off turnovers. Both squads committed 22 miscues, however, the Lady Indians made the most of the Lady Frogs' TOs by converting them into 25 points. TCU had a mere 10 points off turnovers. TCU's field goal percentage did not help matters either, as it made just 37.3 percent (25-67) compared to 43.9 percent for ASU (25-57).
OKLAHOMA'S LAST TIME OUT
The Oklahoma Sooners are coming off a 67-59 loss at Tulsa Saturday, Dec. 4. OU's Dionnah Jackson recorded only the second triple-double in Oklahoma women's basketball history with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. The Sooners were led in scoring by Leah Rush's 17-point effort. Rush fell one rebound shy of a double-double. Tulsa had a quartet of double figure scorers with Jillian Robbins, Megan Moody, Becky Heidotten and LeAnn Upshaw. Robbins had a game-high 20 points, while the other three had half that figure. OU shot 37.1 percent for the game (26-70) and Tulsa was nearly the same with 37 percent (20-54).
