FORT WORTH, Texas -- No. 24 TCU women's basketball looks to run its winning streak to six games on Saturday when Oklahoma visits Schollmaier Arena for a 2 p.m. contest.
TCU (14-5, 5-3) has won five consecutive games, most recently at Kansas State on Wednesday. Oklahoma (10-10, 5-4) is also coming off of a win on Wednesday after knocking off Kansas at home. The Frogs and Sooners have already met once this season with Oklahoma winning at home back on Jan. 4.
How to Follow
Last Time Out
TCU, playing as a ranked team for the first time since 2010, got 22 points from Amy Okonkwo, including a career-high-tying three 3-poitners. Sydney Coleman added 10 points, including two big 3-pointers in the decisive third quarter. The Frogs played without Toree Thompson who had started every game this season but was out with an injury.
Kianna Ray made big plays down the stretch as Kansas State got a 13-point TCU lead down to as close as two points in the final minute of the game.
2. Before its current five-game winning streak, TCU opened Big 12 play with three losses to West Virginia, Kansas and Oklahoma. The Frogs have since beaten the Mountaineers and Jayhawks as part of their winning streak and could avenge the loss to the Sooners on Saturday.
3. TCU's last six-game winning streak came in 2010-11 when the Frogs won eight straight from Dec. 30 to Jan. 22. The last six of those wins were in Mountain West play, marking the last time the Frogs won six consecutive conference games.
The Sooners' starting five all average double-figure scoring, led by Vionise Pierre-Louis at 15.3 points per game. The senior also leads the Sooners at 8.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Four other Sooners average between 12.4 and 13.7 points per game.
Oklahoma has played the nation's third toughest schedule this season with seven of their 10 losses coming to ranked teams.
The Sooners won this season's first meeting, 84-71, in Norman. The Frogs led, 59-56, entering the fourth quarter, but Oklahoma opened the fourth with 12 straight points and never looked back.
