Photo by Heesoo Yang.TCU women’s basketball fell to the Texas Longhorns 77-67 on Wednesday night in Schollmaier Arena.“We started off the game really well,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Obviously they had a really strong second half and their effort on the boards was unmatched.”In the first quarter, TCU came out to an early 13-4 lead led by senior guard Jaycee Bradley, who scored 10 of her 14 points during that run. Texas would come back within six at one point, but the Horned Frogs would end the quarter with a 23-16 lead.The Longhorns started the second quarter strong, coming within four points of the Horned Frogs. Guard Kianna Ray would respond with a three-pointer to bring the lead back to seven.Texas had five turnovers in the second quarter and would not score any field goals in the final 3 minutes of the quarter.TCU would go into the half with a 35-26 lead.The offense picked up for UT in the third quarter. They went on an 8-0 run and came within one point of the Horned Frogs. Their run may have been sparked by the absence of guard Jayde Woods who left the second quarter after colliding with a UT player but later returned in the third quarter with a bandage and stitches over her right eye. “I don’t think we were quite the same team when Jayde went down,” Pebley said. “We lost some efficiency on both ends of the floor.”With just over five minutes to go in the third quarter, the Longhorns gained their first lead of the game, 43-38 and wouldn’t look back. They ended the quarter with a 53-47 lead.UT continued to cruise in the fourth quarter, extending the lead to 11 points right away.First-year guard Celeste Taylor led the Longhorns by scoring 13 of her 22 points in the fourth. TCU would shoot 29 percent on field goals in the second half compared to their 40 percent in the first half. Texas’ comeback was largely due to their strong 58 percent from the floor in the second half.With the loss, TCU splits the season series with Texas, falling to 20-6 overall and 11-4 in the Big 12.The Horned Frogs will travel to Lubbock next to take on Texas Tech on Sunday. Tipoff is set for 12 p.m. Samantha Fristachi is a senior from Massapequa, New York. She is a journalism and sports broadcasting major and a business minor.

A total of 18 countries from Europe participated in the selection.”This is an exceptional success of Croatian family accommodation and a confirmation that this sector is developing in the right direction, and that Croatia is increasingly moving towards the title of the most beautiful and most desirable European destination.

(Photo by Ashley Allen – CPL T20 via Getty Images) GROS ISLET, St Lucia, CMC – Controversy rocked the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after organizers tossed St Lucia Stars from the tournament, just three weeks before the start.While giving no reason for the move, CPL said in a statement it had last Wednesday (August 7) “terminated the participation agreement” with the company which operated the Stars and stressed the entity “no longer has the right” to manage a franchise in the tournament.The release said, “As a result of that termination, Royal Sports Club, LLC no longer has the right to operate a team to compete in the Caribbean Premier League tournament, and the St Lucia Stars will not be participating in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League, which begins on 4 September 2019.”With the tournament set to bowl off shortly, organizers said they were already setting up a new franchise, the details of which would be announced shortly.“CPL Limited is in the process of establishing and operating a new franchise to be based in St Lucia that will participate in the 2019 Caribbean Premier League,” the statement continued.“More information about that new franchise will follow in due course. CPL Limited will be making no further public comment at this time.”The Philadelphia-based Royal Sports Club, headed by Jay Pandya, was announced as owners of the St. Lucia franchise three years ago in what CPL at the time hailed as a “landmark day” for the operations.Then known as St Lucia Zouks, the franchise name was changed to St Lucia Stars the following year, and they subsequently ensured a nightmare winless campaign losing nine of their 10 matches.Popular national figure and two-time T20 World Cup-winning skipper, Darren Sammy, was sacked as captain that season and last year, Kieron Pollard left Barbados Tridents to lead the franchise.With Pollard departing for his native Trinbago Knight Riders for the upcoming season, Sammy was expected to lead the Stars again.
