Beggin and Weissman help New Mexico upset TCUJan 30, 2010 - 10:58 PM ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.(AP) -- Amy Beggin scored 19 points and Eileen Weissmann added a career-high 17 to help New Mexico upset No. 20 TCU 60-53 on Saturday.
Helena Sverrisdotter scored 14 to lead the Horned Frogs (15-5, 5-2 Mountain West), who shot just 17 of 57 (29.8 percent) from the field. It was a ragged game from the outset, with both teams struggling to find a shooting touch.
After leading 21-19 at halftime, New Mexico (13-7, 5-3) found its rhythm in the second half. Midway through the period, New Mexico trailed 37-35, but the Lobos reeled off seven straight points that put them ahead to stay.
TCU climbed back to within 44-42 before Beggin hit consecutive 3-pointers to push the lead to 50-42 - the largest advantage of the game.
