FREEPORT, Bahamas -- Emily Carter scored 16 points, including two free throws with 13.8 seconds left after Kansas was called for a technical foul, lifting TCU to a 74-69 victory over Kansas (No. 23 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) on Saturday at the Junkanoo Jam.
Krysten Boogaard had given the Jayhawks (3-2) a 69-68 lead when they tried to call timeout. They didn't have any left, and Carter converted both of the technical foul shots. TCU then hit two more down the stretch to seal the victory."I have never had that happen before. I have never had a staff member or a player call time out in that situation," Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson said. "In our last huddle, the first and last thing I said was, 'Don't call time out, we are out.' But in the heat of a tight game, sometimes those things happen."The Jayhawks led 64-55 with just under seven minutes to play on a free throw by Boogaard."I am sick about how we played down the stretch," Henrickson said. "We took bad shots, made bad decisions in our offense and didn't get back in transition. Give TCU credit. They kept playing and kept their composure."Starr Crawford had 11 points for the Horned Frogs (4-2), who rebounded from a loss to Minnesota earlier in the tournament. TCU shot only 30.3 percent from the field in that game, but went 26 of 57 from the floor (45.6 percent) against the Jayhawks.Kansas led 33-29 at halftime, thanks in part to good ball movement.
