TCU Women’s Basketball continued their impressive start to the season with a dominant win over Omaha by a score of 96-56. The Frogs improved their record to 12-0, the best start in program history. Omaha was no match for the athleticism and size of the Frogs who outrebounded the Mavericks 59-27. Offensive rebounds were totally dominated by the Frogs who had 20 as a team compared to Omaha’s six. TCU was also better in the assist department with 24 assists as a team, more than double Omaha’s total for the game.

The Frogs got off to a fast start, outsourcing the Mavericks 25-9 in the first quarter. TCU would extend their lead to 55-26 with a 30 point outburst in the second quarter. The third and fourth quarters would be more tightly contested but TCU would still extend their lead in both. The Frogs have done a solid job defending the 3-point line this season and this game was no different as the Mavericks shot just 22.2 percent from deep on 18 attempts.

Sedona Prince had a dominant game against Omaha with a 26 point, 17 rebound double-double. Prince was very efficient, shooting well over 50 percent from the field, making 11-of-18 attempts. She had a solid impact on the defensive side of the ball with two blocks and a steal to go along with her great offensive performance. Madison Conner did a little bit of everything for TCU in her 19-point game against Omaha. Conner knocked down two threes, got to the free throw line five times, and collected four rebounds, three steals and a block.

Jaden Owens was the second Frog to put up a double-double in this game with fourteen points and ten assists. This was the second straight game with double digit assists for Owens who had no turnovers in the game against Omaha. Aaliyah Roberson had the third double-double of the game for TCU with 14 points and 12 boards off the bench. Roberson did a solid job stretching the floor for TCU, knocking down 2-of-4 threes on Wednesday.

The Frogs will wrap up their nonconference schedule on Friday at home against the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers. The Mountaineers have had a tough start to the season, going 3-7 so far but did pick up a solid win on the road against Navy early in the year. Look for the Frogs to dominate the boards again on Friday as Mount St. Mary’s only averages 31 rebounds per game as a team compared to 43.6 per game from TCU.
