Women’s basketball faces AFA at home

After dropping out of the polls after a devastating road loss against New Mexico, the Lady Frogs gained some momentum by defeating a strong Brigham Young team Wednesday. The Lady Frogs, now 16-5, hope to add another win to their record after a conference matchup at home Saturday.

TCU will face the struggling Air Force Academy Falcons. The Falcons are only 3-18 this season and post a 0-8 conference record. However, TCU head coach Jeff Mittie will not approach this game any differently.

“You don’t want to let them stay in the game,” Mittie said. “Our rotation will be very similar. We’ll go into there knowing that we need to get better.”

Air Force freshman forward Kelsey Berger is one potential threat to the Lady Frogs. Berger posts a 59.1 three-point field goal percentage in Mountain West play. Raimee Beck, a junior guard, is a MWC leader in rebounding.

Collectively, Air Force ranks last among conference teams in scoring offense and defense and three-point field goal percent defense. TCU leads the league in two of these categories, scoring offense and three-point field goal defense. The Lady Frogs also lead the league in rebounding offense.

The teams last met at the beginning of January this season. TCU more than doubled the Falcons’ score in a dominating 72-35 victory on the road.
