Wyoming Falls to No. 24 TCU 78-59
Feb. 13, 2010
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Helena Sverrisdottir scored 19 points to lead No. 24 TCU to a 78-59 win over Wyoming on Saturday.
It was the 20th straight home victory for the Lady Frogs (19-5, 9-2 Mountain West) to set a new school record. TCU hasn't lost at home since Jan. 13, 2009.
Wyoming (15-8, 6-5) led 20-19 midway through the first half, but then TCU went on a 22-6 run over the next 9 minutes to take control. The Lady Frogs led 41-26 at the half.
They just kept going in the second half and expanded the lead to as many as 31 late in the game. It was a little easier victory than TCU's last game when the Lady Frogs outlasted Utah 105-96 in four overtimes.
Quotes from Wyoming Head Coach Joe Legerski
"TCU was excellent in all phases of the game. For the first ten minutes, we matched that intensity and I was happy with the start. As our opportunities to score diminished TCU's confidence started to grow. I was pleased with the effort of our young players. Chaundra (Sewell), Sara (Wilson) and Bec (Campigli) gained some valuable experience in a difficult setting."
