    The Lady Frogs snapped a two-game losing streak Saturday afternoon with a 63-52 win over San Diego State University at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

    TCU used a 21-2 first half run to jump out to a lead and never looked back in the second half.

    The Aztecs had no way of stopping sophomore forward Delisa Gross, who went 7-of-7 from the field and scored a career-high 20 points in the win.

    Lady Frogs’ head basketball coach Jeff Mittie said, in a press conference, Gross had better aggressiveness and played with balance on the court.

    Gross attributed her success to the team 8212; TCU posted 16 assists on 23 made field goal attempts.

    “I was able to get so many shots today because of the large number of assists,” Gross said. “It all depends on us penetrating the ball and being able to kick it out, and we did that well today.”

    Gross’s effort tied former Lady Frog Ashley Davis’ record for best single-game shooting performance in school history in 2007.

    Freshman Briesha Wynn scored 13 points and added three steals in her defensive effort.

    Mittie said Wynn gambled in the right spots in Saturday’s game.

    Wynn said she was able to anticipate the pass, and that led to her strong defensive performance.

    The Lady Frogs forced San Diego State into 23 total turnovers, which led to 24 points for TCU, compared to 10 points off turnovers for SDSU.

    The Lady Frogs had the advantage in bench points as well, outscoring the Aztecs 18-4.

    Saturday’s win completes a sweep of SDSU in regular season play, the first time TCU has swept the Aztecs since 2007-08. The Lady Frogs are now 15-8 overall and 7-2 in Mountain West Conference play, while the Aztecs fell to 8-13 overall with a 2-7 Conference record.

    The Lady Frogs resume action Wednesday at UNLV. Tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m.
