Preview: at Iowa State
AMES, Iowa -- No. 22 TCU women's basketball puts its six-game winning streak on the line on Tuesday when it travels to face Iowa State at Hilton Coliseum at 6:30 p.m.
TCU (15-5, 6-3) sits in third place in the Big 12 standings halfway through its league schedule. The Frogs have won six straight games for the first time since 2010-11, including a 62-58 win over Oklahoma on Saturday. Iowa State (9-12, 3-7) split two road games against ranked teams last week.
How to Follow
Last Time Out
TCU shot a season-low 33 percent from the field, but played some of its best defense of the season and held Oklahoma to 35 percent. The Frogs snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Sooners and earned their first six-game win streak since 2010-11.
The Frogs led most of the game, but found themselves down by five points in the fourth quarter. Amber Ramirez scored all nine of her points in the final two minutes of the game, the only Frog to score during that time, and turned a tie game into a TCU win.
2. The Frogs have won their last two road games (West Virginia, Kansas State). TCU last won three straight road games in 2010-11 when it beat San Diego State, Wyoming and Utah in Mountain West play.
3. TCU's bench has outscored the opponent's bench in 19 of 20 games this season, including a 36-0 edge against Oklahoma on Saturday. The Frogs are averaging nearly 35 bench points per game.
Scouting Iowa State
Bridget Carleton is the Big 12's fourth leading scorer at 19.0 points per game and is the only Cyclone averaging in double figures. She scored 39 points in the win at Oklahoma State and is also Iowa State's leader in rebounds and assists.
At 8.2 per game, Iowa State is the only Big 12 team that makes more 3-pointers than TCU (7.5). However, the Cyclones shoot just 32.4 percent from deep while TCU shoots 37.4 percent.
The teams split last season's series with each home team winning, and with each game being decided by five points or less. The Frogs had travel problems getting to Ames last season and arrived in town at 2 p.m. for a 5 p.m. game that was originally to be played at Noon.
