TCU Women’s Basketball closed out their nonconference schedule undefeated for the first time in program history after a blowout victory over Mount St. Mary’s by a score of 87-34. The Frogs put on a show defensively, holding the Mountaineers to just over 22 percent shooting from the field and 19.4 percent from three.
TCU played very disciplined defense, only committing three fouls as a team the whole game. The rebounding battle was easily won by the Frogs as they collected 49 rebounds as a team to the Mountaineers’ 26. TCU wasted no time building a lead, outsourcing Mount St. Mary’s 23-5 in the first quarter.
The Mountaineers would only score nine points in the second quarter as the Frogs extended their lead to 40-14 going into halftime. The third-quarter performance from the Frogs was a defensive clinic as Mount St. Mary’s would only muster up three points in the quarter to TCU’s 31.
Sedona Prince led the way for the Frogs with her second straight double-double. Prince picked up 22 points on over 80 percent shooting from the field along with 15 rebounds and six assists. Prince was a big part of TCU’s outstanding defensive effort with three blocks, a steal, and no personal fouls.
The second Frog to pick up a double-double against the Mountaineers was Agnes Emma-Nnopu who had 15 points and ten rebounds along with two blocks on the defensive end. Madison Conner was the second-leading scorer for the Frogs with 21 points, three assists and three rebounds. Aaliyah Roberson was the final Frog in double figures putting up 10 points, eight rebounds, and two assists.
TCU will open their conference schedule against BYU in Fort Worth on Dec. 30 at 4 p.m. BYU has started their season well with a record of 10-3 thus far. The battle between BYU’s Lauren Gustin and Sedona Prince will be one to watch as both players are effective scorers from the paint and very good rebounders. Kailey Woolston is another name to watch from BYU as a guard with a very nice three-point shot as she is averaging over 50 percent from deep on the year. BYU will be the best team TCU has played thus far but the Frogs have shown no signs of slowing down heading into conference play.
