Women’s Basketball – Lady Frogs, 2-2, to face 20th-ranked Oklahoma

The TCU Lady Frogs will face 20th-ranked Oklahoma on Wednesday night in Norman.TCU head coach Jeff Mittie said the Sooners were led by a good freshman inside player.

Oklahoma freshman center Courtney Paris is averaging 21.7 points and 12.3 rebounds a game, according to www.soonersports.com.

Paris was recently named Big 12 Rookie of the Week.

Mittie said Oklahoma also had veteran perimeter players.

“They are a good, hard-nosed basketball team,” Mittie said.

He said Oklahoma has played more games than the Lady Frogs.

“They participated in the Pre-Season WNIT and lost the championship game to the eighth-ranked University of Connecticut Huskies,” Mittie said. “It is an early advantage to play more games.”

After this past weekend’s tournament, Mittie said, the Lady Frogs were holding up well.

“The schedule ahead is challenging, and we are not shooting well,” he said. “We have to recognize what we need to get better at, and it’s time to go to work and correct mistakes.”

The Lady Frogs have a record of 2-2, and Mittie said he feels that the team has a long way to go.

“We need to get everyone on the same page and going in the same direction,” Mittie said.
