Last Time Out
The Frogs took part in the Maggie Dixon Classic on Wednesday and fell to No. 21 Texas A&M, 71-58, at Reed Arena in College Station, Texas. Great defense had the Frogs ahead at halftime, but the Aggies outscored TCU 25-10 in the third quarter to take control.

Amy Okonkwo led the Frogs with 19 points and seven rebounds while Jordan Moore added 11 points and nine rebounds.


3-Pointers
1. At 77.5 percent, TCU leads the Big 12 Conference in free throw shooting. The Frogs rank 15th in the NCAA and are led by Okonkwo who is 11th in the NCAA at 92.3 percent (24-of-26) and has the most makes and attempts on the team.

2. TCU ranks second in the Big 12 and 20th in the NCAA with a 1.39 assist-to-turnover ratio. The Frogs were the only Big 12 team with more assists than turnovers in every game until they posted 12 of each at Texas A&M on Wednesday.

3. Moore enters Sunday tied for the Big 12 lead with 3.0 blocks per game, a mark that ranks 11th in the NCAA. Moore is also 11th in the NCAA with her 64.0 percent shooting clip from the field. At 15.5 points per game, she is the Frogs' leading scorer.


Scouting Southeastern Louisiana
The Lady Lions haven't played since a Nov. 30 loss at Grambling State, 61-52. Southeastern dominated on the glass, 58-36, in that game but committed a season-high 30 turnovers. The Lady Lions' lone win this season came on the road at Bethune-Cookman, one of only two losses suffered by the Wildcats this season.

Southeastern is led by senior Taylin Underwood who is second in the Southland in scoring at 17.3 points per game and first with 3.3 3-pointers per game. She is only one 3-pointer away from cracking into the top-10 on the Southland Conference's all-time career leaderboard.


The Series
Sunday's meeting will be the first between TCU and Southeastern Louisiana. The Frogs are 37-17 all-time against current Southland Conference members, including 32 consecutive wins. TCU's last loss to a Southland team came on Dec. 6, 1996, at No. 25 Stephen F. Austin.


Up Next
The Frogs will have a full week between games to concentrate on final exams. TCU will be back on the court next Sunday, Dec. 17, when it welcomes Northwestern State to Schollmaier Arena for another 2 p.m. game.
