Air Force Drops Final Road Contest to TCU
Feb. 22, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas - With a season-low scoring output, the Air Force women's basketball team fell to TCU, 61-31, Wednesday evening in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
Four different players--Jamela Satterfield (Sr., Sacramento, Calif.), Dymond James (Jr., Brambleton, Va.), Austyn Wilson (Jr., Dallas, Texas) and Jimi Blagowsky (Fr., Edmond, Okla.)--led the Falcons with six points each, while James added a team-best seven rebounds. Meanwhile, Natalie Ventress led the Horned Frogs with 17 points, while Meagan Henson added 10 points.
Air Force (5-22, 0-12) trailed 10-8 with 9:35 to play in the first half, but TCU put together a 22-2 run before pulling away for a 36-13 advantage at the intermission.
The Horned Frogs (14-13, 7-5) pushed their advantage to 30 points with under 14 minutes left in the second half, but the Falcons clamped down on defense, holding TCU scoreless for more than six minutes. However, Air Force was unable to capitalize on the offensive end, scoring just six points during the stretch, and never recovered.
The Falcons shot a season-low 17.3 percent from the field, while the Horned Frogs knocked down over 42 percent of their shots for the game, including 50 percent in the second half.
The Falcons are back in action this Saturday, Feb. 25, when they host UNLV in a 2:00 p.m. contest.
