Preview: at Texas Tech
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.
How to Follow
Last Time Out
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.
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
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.
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).
