Slideshow: Lady Frogs travel to Colorado State
TCU women’s basketball will compete against Colorado State University as the Rams fight for the number one spot in the Mountain West.
The Lady Frogs (12-11 overall, 5-3 MWC) have won four of their last five games.
The team showcased its defensive skill set last Saturday with a 58-39 win against San Diego State University, who entered the meeting on a 13-game winning streak at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
TCU is ranked in the top 50 in the nation in field-goal percentage, defense and blocked shots per game, according to GoFrogs.com.
This season, the Lady Frogs have competed against nine teams with less than 30 percent shooting from the floor, including SDSU who shot 23.4 percent last weekend.
“It is going to be a tough game because Colorado State is a good team full of shooters,” freshman guard Natalie Ventress said. “We’re just going to have to push through fatigue and play hard the whole game.”
If TCU wins this Saturday, it will be the team’s 14th consecutive win against Colorado State since 1999.
In the Mountain West standings, the Lady Frogs are behind the Rams by one game and tied for third place with UNLV and Wyoming.
“Colorado State is sitting in second place behind San Diego State and are a team that plays with a lot of poise,” senior guard Antionette Thompson said. “Its important that we play our best basketball and don’t allow them to get open shots.”
The Lady Rams (10-13 overall, 6-2 MWC) will enter Saturday’s game after defeating Air Force 77-39 last weekend.
Colorado State freshman guard LaDeyah Forte had nine assists and one turnover against the Falcons. Sophomore forward Sam Forward was Colorado State’s leading scorer with 20 points.
Following TCU and Colorado State’s wins last weekend, the Mountain West had a bye-week, leaving the teams time to prepare for this weekend’s game and to continue their race to come out on top.
“We are going after the same championship they are, and with such a close race for number one, both teams I’m sure will play their hearts out,” sophomore center Latricia Lovings said.

Day in the life of a TCU nursing student
Imagine waking up twice a week at 4:30 a.m., attempting to memorize countless patient medications, driving 30 minutes or more to a hospital and spending the rest of your day taking care of a patient and learning about hospital procedures.
Such is the life of a TCU nursing student during a clinical, a real world experience designed to facilitate the acquisition of practical knowledge and skills. While enrolled in a clinical, nursing students wake up while most of their peers are still sound asleep.
