    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- After one of its biggest wins in recent memory, TCU women's basketball has to quickly shift focus as the Frogs travel to face No. 15 West Virginia at WVU Coliseum on Saturday at 4 p.m. CT.

    TCU (11-5, 2-3) is coming off of a win over No. 7 Texas at home on Wednesday, its first win over a top-10 team in over eight years. Like the Frogs, West Virginia (15-2, 3-2) has won back-to-back games entering Saturday, most recently prevailing at Kansas on Wednesday.

    The Frogs and Mountaineers have already played once this season with a then ninth-ranked WVU team winning, 87-82, in Fort Worth. The Frogs led by five points in the fourth quarter, but the Mountaineers made 10-of-14 shots in the final frame to grab the win.

    How to Follow
    The game will be televised on many FOX Sports regional networks, including FOX Sports Southwest, with Tracy Warren and Dan Hughes on the call. The game can also be heard on KTCU 88.7 FM in Fort Worth, as well as online via FrogVision, with Jeff Williams doing play-by-play. Live stats are also available on GoFrogs.com, and live updates will be provided on Twitter by following @TCUWBasketball.

    Last Time Out
    TCU got the attention of the women's basketball world on Wednesday night with a 79-77 win over No. 7 Texas at Schollmaier Arena. The Frogs set a school record with an 81.8 percent mark from 3-point range on 9-of-11, including a pair of clutch treys in the final minute. The second came from Kianna Ray who also made the go-ahead free throws with 6.8 seconds remaining, capping off a career-high 17 points.

    Jordan Moore led the Frogs with 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting and also added five blocks, including two in the final two minutes. The Frogs snapped a six-game losing skid against Texas and grabbed their first win over a top-10 team since 2009.

    1. TCU is looking for consecutive wins over a ranked opponent, something it has done just once in program history. The Frogs beat No. 3 Georgia and No. 13 Michigan State on Nov. 27 and Nov. 28, 2004, respectively, in Honolulu at the Rainbow Wahine Classic.

    2. In addition to their record 3-point percentage, the Frogs also shot an incredible 58.3 percent from the field against Texas. That came just a game after the Frogs shot 60.3 percent against Texas Tech, their best mark ever in a Big 12 game. TCU also set program Big 12 records with 93 points and 27 assists against the Lady Raiders.

    3. The Frogs offense has been great all season, ranking near the top of the Big 12 in nearly every statistical category. TCU ranks fourth in scoring, second in FG percentage, second in 3FG percentage, first in FT percentage, third in 3FG makes, second in assists and third in assist-turnover ratio.

    Scouting West Virginia
    West Virginia has won back-to-back games, knocking off Iowa State at home last Sunday and Kansas on the road on Wednesday. Prior to that, the Mountaineers lost at Texas and at home to Kansas State for their only two losses of the season.

    WVU allows just 56.2 points per game, ranking second in the Big 12, with TCU's 82 points in the first meeting being the most allowed by the Mountaineers this season.

    Teana Muldrow ranks third in the Big 12 in scoring with 20.6 points per game and second in rebounding with 9.5 rebounds per game. She is one of three Mountaineers averaging over 34 minutes per game, with two others averaging over 28 per game.

    The Series
    The Frogs are hunting the program's first win in Morgantown. West Virginia leads the all-time series, 13-1, including a 5-0 mark inside WVU Coliseum. TCU has lost those five games by an average margin of just over six points, including a close 77-73 loss last season. WVU has won five straight in the series overall with TCU's lone win coming on Feb. 24, 2015 in Fort Worth.

    Up Next
    The Frogs have their bye next week and will get some rest before returning home to host Kansas at Schollmaier Arena next Saturday.
  2. We win! In Ot, 76-74 Horned Frogs...awesome game.
