Last Time Out
TCU broke a school record and tied a Big 12 record with 18 3-pointers as a team in a 112-62 win over Southeastern Louisiana last Sunday. Eleven of those came from Amber Ramirez who broke the TCU and Big 12 individual records on her way to a career-high 33 points.

The game featured 30 3-pointers combined as Southeastern Louisiana hit 12 itself, including 10 in the first half. The Lady Lions shooting kept the game close at halftime, but TCU outscored Southeastern 62-17 in the second half as the Lions made just 7-of-37 shots in the last 20 minutes.


3-Pointers
1. The Frogs have not played since last Sunday due to final exams taking place on TCU's campus. The Frogs are 8-3 under Raegan Pebley when they have at least six days between games, including a perfect 3-0 mark in their first game following finals.

2. TCU dished out 32 assists in its win last weekend, the second most in program history. The Frogs now average 20.2 dimes per game, ranking 11th in the NCAA. The Frogs' 1.49 assist-turnover ratio is the nation's 10th best.

3. Jordan Moore has recorded at least one block in every game this season, and in 12 straight overall dating back to last season. At 2.8 blocks per game she leads the Big 12 and ranks 15th in the NCAA.


Scouting Northwestern State
Sunday's game will be the second straight against the Big 12 for Northwestern State. The Lady Demons lost at Texas on Wednesday, 68-44. NSU has also played at Oklahoma State this season, falling 78-44 on Nov. 19.

The Lady Demons are led in scoring by Cheyenne Brown who is averaging 12.0 points per contest after missing the season's first five games due to injury.


The Series
Northwestern State leads the series, 2-0, but the two haven't played since Jan. 16, 1981. The teams have never played in Fort Worth.

The Frogs have won 33 straight games against opponents from the Southland Conference. The last loss came on Dec. 6, 1996 at No. 25 Stephen F. Austin.


Up Next
The Frogs close out their nonconference schedule on Wednesday when Hampton visits Schollmaier Arena. Hampton has won six of the last eight MEAC Tournament titles, including last season's, and opened this season with a win over North Carolina.
