FREEPORT, Bahamas –
Kansas junior center Krysten Boogaard put in a lay-up with 36 seconds remaining in the game to give the Jayhawks a 69-68 lead, but a technical foul called on Kansas with 13.8 seconds remaining, when a Jayhawk player called a time out when KU did not have one, gave TCU two free throws and the ball. After Lady Frog Emily Carter knocked down both foul shots, Kansas was forced to foul and eventually lost 74-69 in the consolation round of the 2009 Junkanoo Jam.
The loss dropped KU to 3-2 on the season, while TCU improved to 4-2.
The game was a back and forth affair that saw six ties and 13 lead changes, but Kansas seemed to gain control late in the second half. The Jayhawks took a nine point lead at 64-55 with just under seven minutes to play on a free throw by Boogaard.
TCU slowly whittled away the KU lead getting two three-point baskets by Eboni Mangum and a three-point play by Starr Crawford. Mangum’s second of her two three-point baskets gave the Lady Frogs a 68-67 lead with just under a minute to play before Boogaard knocked down a lay-up for Kansas’ final lead of the game.
Boogaard finished with 21 points off of 8-of-8 shooting from the field, but managed to hit only 5-of-14 shots from the foul line. Sophomore forward Aishah Sutherland turned in 16 points and seven boards, while McCray had 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Redshirt freshman guard Angel Goodrich had nine assists to go along with seven points.
TCU was led by Carter with 16 points and Mangum with 14. Crawford finished the game with 11 points and eight boards.
KU knocked down 47.5 percent of its shots from the field, but managed only 3-of-16 from beyond the arc and just 8-of-18 from the foul line. TCU made 45.6 percent of its field goals, but connected on 9-of-20 from the three-point line and made 13-of-18 from the charity stripe.
The Jayhawks will return to Allen Fieldhouse for their next game. KU hosts UCLA on Thursday, Dec. 3. Game time is slated for 7 p.m., and will be televised live on FoxSportsNet.
