BYU Falls To Frogs On The Road


FORT WORTH -- Playing in the home of the team leading the conference, the BYU women’s basketball fell 51-54 to the TCU Horned Frogs, Wednesday.

Two players for BYU were in double-figures with freshman Jennifer Hamson leading the way on a 16-point and 13-rebound double double. Teammate Mindy Bonham contributed 13 to the total.

“This was a great effort tonight from the girls,” said BYU head coach Jeff Judkins. “We played hard and our team defense was outstanding. We just couldn’t get the shot of when we needed to. I thought Jennifer (Hamson) played a really great game for us though and so did Mindy (Bonham).”

The Cougars took the first lead of the game with four quick points from freshman Jennifer Hamson.

Four minutes later, TCU took back the lead but would only end up keeping it for one possession, thanks to a layup from senior Mindy Bonham. The layup secured the advantage would stay with the Cougars heading into halftime.

Back on the court for the second half, BYU continued to lead but the Horned Frogs started putting on extra pressure. TCU pulled the game to a tie at 40-40 but Bonham’s 3-pointer kept the lead with the Cougars.

TCU took just their second lead of the game with eight minutes to play in the game and would ward off BYU’s strong offensive pressure to the end. While the Cougars were never able to get back the lead, they never fell behind by more than three points.

Helena Sverrisdottir led the TCU pack with 16 points and Emily Carter added 15.

BYU will return home to the Marriott Center this Saturday, Jan. 22, to take on the Colorado State Rams at 3 p.m.
