ISO Spotlight: How far can TCU WBB go? | Dave Campbell's
Could Campbell turn TCU around as fast as he turned Sacramento State around? This was a team that really struggled over the past three seasons but wasn't too far removed from three consecutive 20-win campaigns. Still, it was going to be tough.

But it looks like we have an answer, as the Horned Frogs are 14-0 after an undefeated non-conference campaign and a conference-opening win over BYU.

Why Baylor vs. TCU could be the game of the week

TCU is the rare team that can score with Baylor. The Horned Frogs have three guards who regularly let it fly from deep, Madison Conner (10.5 3-point attempts per game), Agnes Emma-Nnopu (five per game) and Una Jovanovic (2.8 per game). They also have a reliable veteran point guard to get them in their spots, Jaden Owens, who just happened to spend the last three years of her college career with the Bears. TCU’s 14-0 record would mean a lot more if it had faced any opponent that even belongs in the same conversation as Baylor, so this is the Horned Frogs’ chance to prove they can compete with anyone.
