The Horned Frogs (7-9) will host Kansas State (10-7) Saturday evening in hopes of avenging a 58-59 loss in the closing seconds of the Jan. 5 contest.
TCU took a 58-54 lead in the closing minutes courtesy of a corner three from freshman Zahna Medley, who ended the game with 12 points.
But Kansas State’s freshman guard Bri Craig pulled the Wildcats to within a point with a late three. The Wildcats then forced a turnover and junior Chantay Caron hit the go-ahead bucket with five seconds remaining in the game.
Craig finished the game with 14 points while Kansas State guard Haley Texada led all scorers with 22 points and four assists.
Head coach Jeff Mittie and the Frogs hope for another productive game from junior Latricia Lovings who finished the Jan. 5 game with a career best 16 points along with 16 rebounds.
Saturday will be head coach Deb Patterson and the Wildcats' first trip to Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Before the Jan. 5 game in Manhattan, KS, the two sides have only met one other time on a neutral court in the 1999 Women’s Sports Foundation Basketball Classic, which TCU won.
TCU is still in search of their first Big 12 victory. The Frogs come in to this matchup 0-5 in conference play after suffering a defeat in Morgantown against West Virginia on Jan. 15.
Kansas State’s only Big 12 win thus far was the Jan. 5 victory against TCU. The Wildcats (1-4 in conference) will try to recover from a 90-69 loss to the visiting Baylor Lady Bears.
The Saturday matchup is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

Newland: A life dedicated to teaching
Forty-five years and counting.
Leo Newland, professor of biology and coordinator of environmental science, became a professor in the fall of 1968 and doesn’t plan on stopping. This fall marked his 45th year at the university, making him the longest tenured professor.
“I will continue to teach until it’s no longer fun,” said Newland. “The single most important thing about your work has to be the enjoyment of it.”
He credits his amazing interactions with his students for his lengthy time teaching at TCU.
Meacham hired as new Offensive Coordinator
Doug Meacham was announced as the new offensive coordinator for the TCU football team Thursday.
Meacham spent the 2013 season as the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Houston. From 2005-12, he coached tight ends and receivers at Oklahoma State.
"Our goal is to remain a physical football team," head coach Gary Patterson said in a press release. "Coach Meacham was part of an Oklahoma State system that was highly successful throwing the football, and he continued that in his one year at Houston.”
Three swimmers close to beating 20-year-old record
Sebastian Arispe, Adam Szilagyi and Anthony McMurry are all battling to break a swim record from 1993.
The 20-year-old record for the 200-meter freestyle is the last of TCU alum Ron Forrest’s seven records that he set as a swimmer on the TCU team. However, he would like to see that record broken this season.
