Women’s basketball grinds out win over Stephen F. Austin
It wasn’t pretty, but TCU got the job done Wednesday night against Stephen F. Austin, winning 60-52 to stay unbeaten at the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum this season.
The Frogs had another slow start, trailing early 12-2. The Ladyjacks had several offensive rebounds early to put the pressure on the Frogs to mount a comeback before halftime.
TCU (5-3) took advantage of good defense and poor shooting by SFA and only trailed by four before Zahna Medley beat the halftime buzzer with a desperation heave to cut the lead to one.

The fall class of 2013 will receive their diplomas at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, but the spring commencement will likely be held outdoors.
Construction crews are expected to begin work on a $45 million renovation of the coliseum this spring. Plans are already underway to make the spring ceremony an outdoors occasion.
