    After surviving a quadruple overtime against the University of Utah, the Lady Frogs return home hoping to continue their success by overcoming the University of Wyoming this Saturday in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

    By staying strong against Utah, the TCU women’s basketball team advanced to 18-5, but Wyoming will present just as much of a challenge for TCU.

    The teams last met at the beginning of January this season. As a result of a slow start, the Lady Frogs suffered their first Mountain West Conference loss 73-67 on the road, which snapped their seven-game winning streak.

    This time around, there is more at stake for TCU. With 19 consecutive wins in the DMC, the team is looking to break its longest home victory streak on top of holding the No. 24 spot in the Associated Press Top 25 rankings.

    TCU is also leading the MWC with an 8-2 record, still holding a one-win lead in the conference standings over Brigham Young University with Wyoming and New Mexico not far behind. Despite the pressure, the Lady Frogs should be able to use the momentum from their three-game winning streak to lead them to another victory at home.

    Off the court, the matchup will serve as the Lady Frogs’ annual Pink Zone promotion. The WBCA Pink Zone is a unified effort among the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association to raise breast cancer awareness on the court, college campuses and across the nation. The team will suit up in pink and purple uniforms, which will be auctioned off at a later date to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. In addition, TCU will be hosting a women’s health fair on the DMC concourse one hour before tip-off.
