The TCU women’s basketball team will face Colorado State on the road in Fort Collins, Colo. at 8 p.m. today.
The Lady Frogs moved to second place in the Mountain West Conference with a 65-54 win over Wyoming on Saturday afternoon. The game featured 11 ties and 12 lead changes. The Lady Frogs (17-8, 9-2 MWC) have rattled off three straight wins.
Senior guard and forward Helena Sverrisdottir notched another career accomplishment as a Horned Frog in the victory over the Cowgirls, passing Sandora Irvin as the all-time leader in starts with 119. Sverrisdottir already secured the all-time TCU lead in assists earlier in the season.
“We have been able to string together some wins here,” head coach Jeff Mittie said. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to continue momentum into this week’s games.”
Colorado State (12-11, 5-5 MWC) enters the contest after losing to the University of New Mexico 86-53 on Saturday. After nine turnovers, the Rams could not overcome an early deficit in the first half. Colorado State is now in fourth place in the MWC.
The teams last met in mid-January. TCU forced 31 turnovers, which led the way to an easy 66-40 victory over the Rams at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
Colorado State has 11 straight losses to TCU and hasn’t defeated the Frogs since 1999. The Rams are at home for four of their final six regular season games with only two road trips remaining.
The only team standing in the way of the Lady Frogs winning the Mountain West Conference title is BYU (18-7, 10-1 MWC). The Cougars are only at home for two of their final five regular season games. They must face Wyoming, third-place in the MWC, right before the Mountain West Conference Championships.
“We are really looking forward to our game against BYU, but right now we are focused on Colorado State,” Mittie said. “Both will be very difficult games for us, especially with them being on the road.”
