Despite Lauren Heard’s career night, TCU women’s basketball was unable to complete their late comeback effort to defeat Texas Tech.

The Horned Frogs nearly overcame a 15-point deficit but fell to Texas Tech 87-83 Sunday afternoon.

TCU was down 72-57 with 9:41 to play in the final quarter and used an 18-6 run led by Jaycee Bradley to come within three. Bradley scored seven of her 14 points during the run.

Texas Tech responded by going up four, 82-78, but Bradley hit a 3-pointer to bring the Horned Frogs within one.

TCU couldn’t find the basket in the final minute and failed to complete the comeback.

Heard finished with a career-high 28 points. The junior also scored her 1,000th career point, becoming the seventh-fastest Horned Frog to do so.

Texas Tech was led by Lexi Gordon, who scored a game-high 30 points and made five of Tech’s 10 three-pointers. TCU made eight three-pointers in the game, with seven of them coming in the first half.

With the loss, TCU falls to 20-7 overall and 11-5 in the Big 12.

The Horned Frogs will travel back home to take on the Oklahoma Sooners this Wednesday for Senior Day.
