FORT WORTH, Texas – Emily Carter scored 26 points while Helena Sverrisdottir added 24 to help TCU overcome the return of Oklahoma's Whitney Hand and beat the 15th-ranked Sooners 76-69 on Sunday.
Hand played for the first time in 401 days after suffering an ACL injury last season. She had a career-high 24 points, but the Sooners (10-3) couldn't find a way to slow down Sverrisdottir and Carter in the final 3½ minutes.
With the game tied at 63 with 3:29 left, the senior pair combined for 12 of TCU's last 13 points while the Horned Frogs (8-6) held the Sooners to just two field goals in that span.
TCU, which has won 28 of its last 29 home games, scored seven of the first eight points to start the second half and take a 35-33 lead, the Lady Frogs' first of the game. That would start off a string of nine ties and eight lead changes until Carter and Sverrisdottir took over.
Oklahoma led by as many as nine points in the first half and 32-28 at halftime behind Hand's 17 points.
Danielle Robinson scored 17 points for Oklahoma, but the rest of the Sooners starters were just 6-for-21 from the field.
