The hard-fought win arguably was UT's closest game this season. The teams swapped buckets throughout the first quarter until TCU opened the second quarter with a 10-2 run, forcing Texas head coach Karen Aston to call a timeout. The Longhorns closed the quarter with a 9-3 run, trimming the Horned Frogs' lead to 33-28.
