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
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.
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.
