TCU could not stop Kansas’ furious second half comeback, as the Horned Frogs fell to the Jayhawks 82-72 on the road Sunday afternoon.

Senior guard Lauren Heard led TCU with 19 points and was one of the three Horned Frogs that finished with double-digit points.

Aahliyah Jackson and Patricia Morris both had 10 points each in the loss. Michelle Berry led the team with 10 rebounds, which marks the fourth game this season she has had double-digit rebounds. 

After failing to score until almost five minutes had passed in the first quarter, TCU stepped up to the plate big time before halftime, taking a 33-25 lead into the break 

The Horned Frogs could not keep control of the lead, though, as the Jayhawks would go on to explode offensively. Kansas outscored TCU 27-22 in the third quarter and 30-17 in the fourth quarter. 

Though TCU tied a season-high 22-points scored in the second quarter, they also gave up a season-high 30 points in the fourth quarter.

With the loss, TCU moves to 7-9 on the season. The Frogs snapped a six-game winning streak against the Jayhawks. 

Up next for the Horned Frogs are the Kansas State Wildcats. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Schollmaier Arena on Wednesday, Feb.10.
