AUSTIN, Texas - Madison Booker scored 21 points, Taylor Jones had 13 and No. 10 Texas beat TCU 72-60.

Booker, a freshman, added seven rebounds and six assists as Texas (16-1, 3-1 Big 12) won its third straight game. It also improved to 25-1 against TCU in Austin.

Aaliyah Roberson led TCU (14-3, 1-3) with 15 points, and Madison Conner scored 14. The Horned Frogs committed 23 turnovers, including 11 by Jaden Owens, in their third consecutive loss.

Texas had a 10-point lead with 2:32 left. TCU closed to 66-60 on Victoria Flores’ 3-pointer with 1:55 remaining, but Jones made two free throws and Booker made four foul shots to help the Longhorns close it out.

Texas struggled offensively for most of the first half. Then it made three 3-pointers in the final two minutes, two by Shay Holle and one by Shaylee Gonzales, for a 34-26 lead at the break.

Even with the hot finish, Texas shot just 37% from the field in the half. TCU committed 13 turnovers before intermission.

BIG PICTURE

TCU: The Horned Frogs played their second straight game without 6-foot-7 graduate transfer Sedona Prince, who has a broken finger. She plans to return this season. Prince, who initially enrolled at Texas, transferred to Oregon after missing her freshman year with a broken leg, and landed at TCU this season. She averages 21.2 points and 10.2 rebounds, and she also ranks fourth in the nation in blocks per game with 3.3.

Texas: Forward Aaliyah Moore appeared in her 12th game since returning from season-ending surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee that was torn in December 2022. Moore said she feels fine, but she’s still trying to regain her confidence as a player, particularly her ability to make shots. She scored six points against TCU.
