The Lady Frogs said they refuse to take their Saturday home game against San Diego State lightly, even though the team has yet to capture a conference victory.While the Aztecs (3-19) have not had much success this season, TCU head coach Jeff Mittie said they should still not be overlooked.
Mittie said that although the Aztecs do not shoot well from the outside, they have some players who are capable of getting to the inside, which the Frogs will work to defend by closing the lanes.
“They’ve got an athletic team,” he said. “We’ve got to keep them from driving to the basket.”
TCU (13-9) leads the series against the Aztecs 3-2 and is 2-0 against them at home. The Frogs won the last matchup 77-60 on Jan. 18 in San Diego.
The Lady Frogs shot 39.3 percent from the field that night, with sophomore forward Lorie Butler-Rayford leading the way in scoring with 11 points. She also managed 13 rebounds, earning a double-double for the game.
Junior forward Ashley Davis said although the Frogs have been playing well, they have some improvements to make in practice.
Davis also said that a key Aztec player to watch is senior forward Michelle Strawberry, who averaged 13.9 points per game for the 2005-2006 season.
Mittie said one thing the Frogs need to do is to take better care of the basketball. In the last matchup, the Aztecs scored 24 points off TCU turnovers.
