The Cowgirls had the shot up to tie the game, but the ball just didn’t go in.

Eighth-seeded Oklahoma State fell to No. 9 TCU 68-66 in the second round of the Big 12 Women’s Basketball Championship on Friday in Kansas City. The Cowgirls’ comeback fell just short after being down by as many as 12 in third quarter.

Down two, OSU had possession for the final 29 seconds before Anna Gret Asi put up the last jumper of the game that bounced off the rim as time expired. The Cowgirls were looking for that final shot until TCU finally fouled with eight seconds left. TCU gave up its last foul to give with three seconds left before both coaches called timeouts.

The Cowgirls made it a game thanks to a 13-0 run late in the third quarter that put them up 50-49 to start the fourth. Another run of seven put OSU ahead 60-54 with 6:36 left, which was the Cowgirls’ largest lead of the game. TCU’s Agnes Emma-Nnopu then made back-to-back treys, though, to tie the game at 60. That was the first of four ties in the last 4:36 before Sedona Prince gave TCU the final lead with a pair of free throws with 29 seconds left.

OSU guard Quincy Noble did all she could to try to keep her team alive with a game-high 26 points — 19 of which came in the second half to boost the Cowgirls’ comeback. She was 4-for-8 from beyond the arc, while also adding four assists and a steal to the stat sheet. Asi and Rylee Langerman also reached double digits with 12 apiece.

Dropping to 14-16, the Cowgirls will likely miss the NCAA Tournament but could perhaps still make the WNIT. TCU, meanwhile, moved on to the quarterfinals to play top-seeded Oklahoma.
