Women’s Roundup: Longhorns smoke TCU

December 11, 2002


— After a 2-2 start prompted a whole lot of questions, No. 23 Texas finally found what it was looking for Tuesday night in an 86-54 win against TCU.

Shooting, rebounding, defense and attitude all finally came together for Texas in the Longhorns' third straight blowout win at home.

"Everything we've been lacking, I think we showed signs of being capable tonight," Texas coach Jody Conradt said. "We showed something we hadn't before in terms of character and determination and fight.

"We still have to prove that we can win on the road."

The victory against TCU (3-4) opened a four-game home stand for Texas, which has struggled badly in two losses away from the Frank Erwin Center.

The Longhorns have won their three home games by an average score of 91-38.

Reserve Alisha Sare provided the scoring spark with 17 points, 14 in the first half. Heather Schreiber added 14 points, Stacy Stephens 12 and Coco Reed 10 for the Longhorns (3-2).

Texas A&M; 85, Wright State 68

Dayton, Ohio - Lynn Classen and Kim Moore each scored 20 points Tuesday night to lead Texas A&M; past Wright State.

Classen also grabbed eight rebounds and blocked two shots and her career-high point total. Moore had 12 rebounds. Natasha Summerville added 14 points off the bench.

Texas A&M; (5-1) and Wright State (1-5) were tied at 37-37 at the half.
