FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU women's basketball team returns to action on Saturday to play host to Texas State at 7 p.m., at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

The Horned Frogs (1-1) took to the road for the first time this season on Wednesday in Garland, Texas, falling to SMU in an overtime thriller by a score of 82-78.

TCU erased a double-digit second half deficit with a 33-10 run to take a 12-point lead with under seven minutes to play before SMU's Keena Mays keyed a Mustang run that would ultimately force overtime, marking the Frogs' first overtime action since March 12, 2011.

Junior guard Donielle Breaux enjoyed a career night, erupting for 20 points off the bench while also setting career highs in rebounds (eight), made field goals (five), made 3-pointers (4), made free throws (6) and minutes played (32). The Missouri City, Texas, native buried three of her four 3-pointers during TCU's massive run and is currently averaging 15.5 points through the season's first two games.

Sophomore guard Zahna Medley reached double figures for the 21st time in her career with 14 points to go with seven assists and three steals and connected on a triple for the 31st time in 32 career games.

Senior center Latricia Lovings played a career-most 39 minutes against the Mustangs, scoring seven points while pulling down 13 rebounds with five blocked shots. The Fort Worth native has already reached two career milestones this season, surpassing the 200-block threshold (205) while also becoming just the 11th member of TCU's 500-rebound club (507).
