AMES, Iowa -- No. 22 TCU women's basketball played one of its most dominant games of the season and cruised to a 75-52 win over Iowa State at Hilton Coliseum on Tuesday night, marking the Frogs seventh consecutive win.

TCU (16-5, 7-3) got 25 points from Jordan Moore, the most in a Big 12 game in the junior's career. She made 8-of-14 shots and 9-of-9 free throws and also contributed six boards as the Frogs outrebounded Iowa State (9-13, 3-8) by 17, 41-24.

Amber Ramirez added 12 points for the Frogs and was one of three with a team-high three assists. Toree Thompson returned after missing the last two games with injury and scored eight points.

TCU has won seven straight conference games for the first time since 2008.

The Frogs frustrated Iowa State's offense all night, holding the Cyclones to 36 percent shooting, including 6-of-24 from long range. Emily Durr led Iowa State with 21 points, but had just 11 after the first quarter. TCU held Bridget Carleton to 12 points.

TCU held ISU scoreless over final 3:40 of the second quarter, turning a seven-point, 36-29, lead into a 14-point, 43-29, lead at halftime. Moore then scored the first seven points of the second half and extended the TCU lead to 21 points at 50-29.

The Frogs would go on to lead by as many as 26 in the third quarter as they held the Cyclones to just 11 points and 3-of-13 shooting.

Iowa State opened the fourth on a 10-0 run to cut TCU's 65-40 lead down to 15 points, 65-50. However, after the Cyclones initial outburst, TCU held them without a point for over seven minutes and completed the road victory.

Stat of the Game
18 -- TCU recorded 18 second-chance points, outscoring the Cyclones 18-4 in that category. The Frogs outrebounded the Cyclones, 41-24, including 13 offensive boards for TCU.

Quote of the Game
"I think our extended pressure was beneficial to us defensively and took them out of some operating areas offensively. I think that was something we really felt like we needed to do because they execute so well and shoot the ball so well." - Raegan Pebley
