Wells hit two free throws and, after TCU's Kianna Ray and Jones traded layups, Carter made a 3-pointer and then a layup to give the Aggies (8-1) a 68-66 lead with 32 seconds remaining. Jayde Woods answered with a layup before Carter split two defenders and hit a running floater over a third.

TCU called a timeout to move the ball to the front court and Heard inbounded the ball to Adeola Akomolafe, who handed it back to Heard but she didn't get off a shot before time expired.

Heard led the Horned Frogs with 21 points -- her third consecutive game with at least 20 points. Ray scored 20 points and Michelle Berry, a graduate transfer from Virginia Tech, added 11 and 12 rebounds.
