STILLWATER, Okla. -- TCU women's basketball closes its regular season on Monday when it travels to take on Oklahoma State at Gallagher-Iba Arena at 7 p.m.

TCU (18-10, 9-8) will look to close its regular season with three wins in its final four games, with the lone loss to coming to No. 3 Baylor on Saturday. Oklahoma State (19-9, 10-7) is coming off of a win at West Virginia on Saturday.

The Frogs sit in fifth place in the Big 12 standings, one game behind Oklahoma State and one game ahead of West Virginia. With a win, TCU would be the No. 4 seed in the Big 12 Championships, which take place next weekend. With a loss and a WVU loss at Baylor, TCU will be No. 5. With a loss and a WVU win at Baylor, TCU will be No. 6.

Last Time Out
TCU gave up an early run and couldn't recover in an 85-53 loss to No. 3 Baylor on Saturday night at Schollmaier Arena. Following the game, TCU honored seniors Toree Thompson and Sydney Coleman, who played their final regular-season game at home.

Amy Okonkwo led TCU with 13 points, including a pair of 3-pointers. Kianna Ray was also in double figures with 12 points, including 7-of-8 free throws. Baylor started the game on a 13-0 run and TCU never recovered as the Lady Bears moved their winning streak to 24 consecutive games.

The Frogs had won their previous two games, beating Kansas State and Texas Tech.

1. TCU's nine conference wins and 18 overall wins are tied for its most since joining the Big 12. TCU's 18 overall wins are its most in a regular season since joining the Big 12.

2. When it plays in the Big 12 Championships next week, the Frogs will be playing with their second best seed in the tournament. The Frogs finished in a four-way tie for third place in 2015 and earned the No. 3 seed. TCU has been seeded seventh or lower in its other four Big 12 Championships.

3. TCU has a chance to win its third game against a ranked team this season, something it has done so just twice in program history. TCU can also win its second road game against a ranked team this season, something it has never done.

Scouting Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State is just 2-3 since winning at TCU on Feb. 7, including a 79-69 win at West Virginia on Saturday in its most recent game. The Cowgirls lost their only home games in that stretch, but to No. 3 Baylor and No. 6 Texas.

The Cowgirls are led by a pair of seniors who will be playing their final home game on Monday in Loryn Goodwin and Kaylee Jensen. Goodwin is the Big 12's leading scorer at 20.8 points, ranks fourth with 5.3 assists and first with 3.5 steals per game. Jensen is fifth in scoring at 18.5 points and leads the league in rebounding at 10.7 boards per game.

The Series
Oklahoma State leads the all-time series, 10-5, including a 7-4 mark since TCU joined the Big 12 in 2012-13. The Frogs are 1-7 all-time in Stillwater with the lone win coming on Jan. 24, 2015.

OSU has won three straight games after sweeping last season's meetings and winning in Fort Worth earlier this season.

The Cowgirls won this season's first game, 71-54, on Feb. 7. Both teams shot just 39 percent in that game, but a big difference was OSU's 51-32 rebounding advantage. The Cowgirls also committed just six fouls and TCU shot just six free throws.

Up Next
The Frogs turn their attention to the Big 12 Championships, which begin for TCU with the quarterfinals next Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. If TCU is the No. 4 or No. 5 seed, it will play at 11 a.m. If it is the No. 6 seed, it will play at 8:30 p.m. The Frogs will play either Oklahoma State or Oklahoma.
