TCU women beat Texas Tech 71-60


    With the score tied and less than three minutes in the first half, senior Natalie Ventress scored a 3-pointer that would keep TCU ahead of Texas Tech for the rest of the game.

    The TCU women’s basketball team won against Texas Tech Sunday afternoon in a final score of 71 to 60. The win pushes the TCU women to 14-8 overall and 6-5 in the Big 12.

    “Today’s game was a great basketball game. Both teams competed really, really hard. Both teams went through a lot of adversity,” coach Raegan Pebley said.

    Texas Tech lost forward Kelsi Baker in the beginning of the first half due to an injury. Regular TCU starter, Zahna Medley, was replaced by Klara Bradshaw to start the game.

    TCU wanted to avenge an ugly season-opening loss of 52-37 against Texas Tech. The TCU recreation center was filled and energy was radiating off of the crowd and players.

    “We spent a lot of time focusing on our offense this week,” coach Pebley said. “And, I think our 16 offensive rebounds proved it.”

    TCU’s had three players score in double figures. Juniors Zahna Medley and Veja Hamilton scored 10 points each. Ventress was a star player of the game, she scored 11 points and had seven rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    The Frogs will hit the road to play Kansas State on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
