Lady Frogs to face the Aztecs

The Lady Frogs will try to stretch its winning streak to four games this Saturday at San Diego State University.

Head coach Jeff Mittie said even though the Frogs beat the Aztecs handily in the team’s first meeting, he is not taking SDSU for granted.

“In a conference where you play both teams twice, a lot of it depends on when you play people. They’re a different team than they were last time,” Mittie said. “You have to make some adjustments and look at what worked and what didn’t work.”

The Horned Frogs (13-9, 6-2) beat the San Diego State Aztecs (13-7, 4-4) 86-63 in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum on Jan. 9.

Senior forward Jenna Lohse said she thinks the Aztecs will put up a good fight, but her game plan is simple.

“Just play hard,” Lohse said.

TCU is the second highest scoring team in the conference, averaging 69.4 points per game. San Diego ranks just behind in third with 68.3 points per game.

Senior guard/forward Lorie Butler-Rayford said she wants to slow the game down to suit the Horned Frogs’ pace and throw off the Aztecs’ quick offense.

“I don’t want to tell any secrets that we have,” Butler-Rayford said. “San Diego State is a quick team. If we slow down and cut our turnover ratio, that’ll help us a lot.”

Turnovers should be hard to come by, as San Diego State and TCU lead the conference in turnover margin at +6.00 and +6.0, respectively.

The Aztecs are on a four game winning streak after, last defeating Air Force 62-45 Wednesday.

SDSU’s leading scorer is sophomore guard Jene Morris, who is averaging 13.1 points per game.

Senior guard Adrianne Ross leads the Horned Frogs’ scoring attack, ranking 8th in the Mountain West Conference with 13.7 points per game.

Tipoff is set for 3 p.m. in Cox Arena at Aztec Bowl in San Diego.
