The TCU women's basketball team will continue post-season play against Oral Roberts University in an effort to cage the Golden Eagles and avoid elimination from the Women's National Invitation Tournament. Tip-off is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum on Thursday.
During the ESPN NCAA selection show Monday, TCU was not one of the 64 college names revealed in the bracket. Senior guard Helena Sverrisdottir said the team watched just in case they made the tournament; however, they realized their odds of going to the big dance were low.
The No. 7 TCU baseball team exited the field of Lupton Stadium with bowed heads and slumped shoulders after losing to unranked Houston Baptist University, 7-4, on Saturday.
Junior short stop Taylor Featherston, who went 2-for-3 at the plate, said the game could have ended differently but the team didn't execute plays that could have changed the game.
"It's never good to lose, but they just played a better baseball game then we did," Featherston said. "They did the things they had to when it counted."
After giving Houston Baptist University their first win of the season, TCU's baseball team rallied behind the leadership of senior second baseman Jerome Pena and junior shortstop Taylor Featherston in route to a 6-1 victory and a series win at Lupton Stadium.
"Everyone's kind of excited about this win, but we can't forget what happened yesterday," Pena said. "That"s going to be in the back of our minds for a little bit."
Seniors Helena Sverrisdottir, Emily Carter, Micah Garoutte, and Rachel Rentschler may have ended their TCU basketball career with a hard fought 52-47 overtime loss to Utah Saturday afternoon in the finals of the 2011 Mountain West Conference Tournament at the Thomas & Mack Center.
The first half was all Utes (18-16, 7-9 MWC), who jumped out to an early 16-2 lead in the first 8:29 of play and traded baskets in the remainder of the period to enter the locker room with a 30-20 lead.
