Ponies fall short in double OT

SMU women’s basketball had a disappointing 87-73 loss to TCU in a double overtime game on Wednesday, dropping them to 0-2 in the season.

After a very close game, TCU dominated the scoreboard in the second overtime. TCU’s guard Emily Carter had 43 points while SMU’s guard Samantha Mahnesmith had a career high of 19 points.

The Mustangs jumped out to an early 19-13 lead before TCU closed the gap in the latter half of the first half.

SMU shot 31 percent from the field, while TCU shot 54 percent. TCU was more accurate in their field goals and that made the difference in the first half.

The second half however showed an offensive change of pace as the Mustangs outscored the Horned Frogs 32-29  to tie the game 62-62. SMU improved its field goal percentage to 38 percent, while TCU dropped down to 23 percent. Towards the end of the half, SMU was down by four with 1:50 left in the half. Haley Day scored a field goal with 47 seconds left, and then Raquel Christian hit the “game- tying” field goal with 15 seconds left.

In the first overtime both teams tied at six. The second OT however was dominated by TCU with 19 points to 5.

The Mustangs brought the game as far they possibly could against their conference rival. The team will definitely be looking to improve upon their recent loss. As Coach Rhonda Rhompola said in a news release, “We really showed some good heart as a team tonight. It’s a tough loss, but we’ll learn from it and be a better team for it.”

The Mustangs play again on Sunday at University of Texas San Antonio. The team hosts the Hoops for the Cure Tournament on Nov. 26-27. Akron, Arkansas State, and Georgia Southern will be coming to Moody Coliseum for the two day tournament. SMU will play Arkansas State at 7:00 p.m. after Georgia Southern takes on Akron. The consolation game and championship game will be held the following day.
