Breaking Rams’ offense key to Lady Frogs’ victory

The No. 20 Lady Frogs (14-4, 4-1 Mountain West) will be looking to continue their home dominance when they take on conference foe Colorado State University (11-7, 3-2 Mountain West) on Wednesday at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

The team is 9-0 at home this year and will face a Rams team with an away record of 3-5.

“We do take a personal pride in defending our home court,” Horned Frog head coach Jeff Mittie said. “But we also take pride in going on the road and taking over their court.”

The Lady Frogs rallied from a halftime deficit in Las Vegas to rout UNLV by 20 points Saturday with four out of five starters scoring in double digits. Mittie credited the rally to less three-point attempts and more free-throw attempts by his squad.

“We tend to fall into that trap and think that we’re going to just shoot,” Mittie said. “But they had a different mentality in the second half. They were going to attack the rim.”

The Rams are coming to Fort Worth with a two-game winning streak and a 2-0 record in conference away games.

Mittie said in order to slow the Rams down, his team needs to get them out of an offensive rhythm early.
