LUBBOCK, Texas -- TCU women's basketball looks to build momentum as the Frogs travel to take on Texas Tech at United Supermarkets Arena on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

TCU (17-9, 8-7) sits in fifth place in the Big 12 standings after an 87-70 win over Kansas State on Saturday. The Frogs are just a game behind Oklahoma State and Oklahoma who are tied for third place. Texas Tech (7-19, 1-14) has lost eight straight games, most recently at Iowa State on Saturday.

The game will be televised FOX Sports Southwest with Chuck Heinz and Craig Wells on the call. The game can also be heard on KTCU 88.7 FM in Fort Worth, as well as online via FrogVision, with Jeff Williams doing play-by-play.

Last Time Out
TCU snapped a four-game losing streak in convincing fashion, beating Kansas State, 87-70, in its annual #Play4Kay game at Schollmaier Arena on Saturday afternoon.

TCU had a 17-point lead at halftime and it never went below 12 points in the second half as the Frogs shot 54 percent on the night. Amy Okonkwo led TCU with 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Fellow post player Jordan Moore added 16 points as she and Okonkwo combined to shoot 15-of-21 from the floor and 8-of-8 at the free throw line. The duo was a big reason TCU outscored Kansas State in second-chance points, 23-5.

1. TCU's 17 wins are tied for its most in a regular season since the Frogs joined the Big 12 in 2012-13. An 18th win would be TCU's most in a regular season since 2010-11.

2. TCU's offense ranks among the Big 12's best as the Frogs rank fourth in the league in scoring offense, third in field goal percentage, second in 3-point percentage, first in free throw percentage and second in assists.

3. TCU is seeking its second season sweep of a Big 12 opponent this season. The win over K-State on Saturday gave TCU a sweep of the Wildcats. The Frogs have split the other five series that have been completed.

Scouting Texas Tech
Texas Tech has lost eight straight games since its lone Big 12 win, a 68-56 victory at Kansas on Jan. 17. The Lady Raiders are coming off of a 69-57 loss at Iowa State on Saturday, the closest final score in their current streak.

The Lady Raiders' top five scorers are all post players, led by Jada Terry and Brittany Brewer at 10.4 and 10.0 points per game, respectively. The post-centric play can be seen in Texas Tech's +4.5 rebound margin, the third best in the Big 12.

The Series
Texas Tech leads the all-time series, 42-9, but TCU holds an 8-5 advantage since joining the Big 12 in 2012-13. Texas Tech was 33-0 against TCU when the two were Southwest Conference members from 1982-1996. TCU is 18-3 all-time in Lubbock with two of those wins coming in their five meetings as a Big 12 team.

TCU won this season's earlier meeting, 93-72, in Fort Worth on Jan. 7. It was the Frogs' first in a seven-game win streak and also the most points TCU has ever scored in a Big 12 game.

Wednesday's meeting will be the 52nd between the two, the second most for TCU against any team (SMU, 60).

Up Next
The Frogs play their final home game on Saturday when No. 3 Baylor visits Schollmaier Arena for a 5 p.m. contest. It will be Senior Night as Toree Thompson and Sydney Coleman play their final home games.
