#15 West Virginia
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- After one of its biggest wins in recent memory, TCU women's basketball has to quickly shift focus as the Frogs travel to face No. 15 West Virginia at WVU Coliseum on Saturday at 4 p.m. CT.
TCU (11-5, 2-3) is coming off of a win over No. 7 Texas at home on Wednesday, its first win over a top-10 team in over eight years. Like the Frogs, West Virginia (15-2, 3-2) has won back-to-back games entering Saturday, most recently prevailing at Kansas on Wednesday.
The Frogs and Mountaineers have already played once this season with a then ninth-ranked WVU team winning, 87-82, in Fort Worth. The Frogs led by five points in the fourth quarter, but the Mountaineers made 10-of-14 shots in the final frame to grab the win.
