    After ten days off, the women’s basketball team will take the court for an afternoon matinee Sunday against Texas-Pan American.

    TCU comes off a 60-52 win on Dec. 4 over Stephen F. Austin in which head coach Jeff Mittie said he was not pleased with his team’s performance. He said he expected them to play much better than they did, and was eager to get a few much needed practices in before the next game.

    The Frogs lead the overall series 9-1. Here’s how the matchup breaks down:

    UT-PAN AM THIS YEAR
    The Broncs come in to the game with a 5-3 record, winning three of their last four. Head coach Larry Tidwell served as an assistant at TCU for eight years and will face his former team for the first time Sunday.

    A freshman, Shawnte’ Goff, leads the Broncs in scoring, averaging just over 10 points per contest, while the defense is holding opponents to under 56 points per game.

    PLAYER TO WATCH
    Sophomore guard Zahna Medley sits at 99 career three-pointers, and if she gets one in the contest against UTPA, she will become the second fastest player to reach 100 for the Frogs (Jill Sutton). Medley would become the 12th player in program history to reach the triple digit mark for three pointers in her career.
