Lady Frogs stumble in double overtime

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jessica Dickson hit a 35-foot desperation shot to end the first overtime, then added nine more points in the second to lead South Florida past No. 18 TCU 89-84 Monday night.

Dickson, a freshman forward, had 20 of her 36 points in regulation as the Bulls (9-12, 2-6 Conference USA) rallied from an 11-point early deficit.

Dickson made two free throws with 22 seconds left in regulation to give South Florida a 66-64 lead, but TCU’s Ebony Shaw answered with a layup 8 seconds later to force overtime.

A pair of free throws by Tracy Wynn gave TCU (16-4, 5-2) a 74-71 lead with 8.8 seconds left in the first overtime, but Dickson connected at the buzzer to force another extra session.

Dickson’s jumper with 2:06 left in the second overtime put South Florida ahead to stay, 82-80. Anedra Gilmore had 17 points and Rachael Sheats added 13 for the Bulls, who won for only the second time in eight games.

Sandora Irvin had 24 points and grabbed 21 rebounds to lead TCU, which hurt itself by committing 26 turnovers on the night.

Natasha Lacy and Wynn each scored 10 points for the Horned Frogs, who lost for just the second time in the last eight games.

The Frogs last loss came against Houston 61-59 Jan. 18 at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. The loss to South Florida was the Frogs first defeat on the road in Conference USA play this season.

Ashley Davis hit back-to-back 3-pointers midway through the first half to give TCU its biggest lead of at 28-17, but Dickson led the Bulls back.
