TCU women’s basketball looks to get their first ranked win against No. 24 Oklahoma

TCU will visit Norman to take on the No. 24 Oklahoma Sooners in their first of two top-25 games this week.

Coming off two straight losses, the TCU women’s basketball team (15-6, 2-8 Big 12) is set to play at No. 24 Oklahoma (15-6, 9-1 Big 12) Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 6 p.m. CST.

This marks the sixth straight time TCU will face a Sooners squad that is ranked. It will be the only regular season game they play against Oklahoma all year. The Horned Frogs rank 42nd in the latest NET rankings, while Oklahoma ranks 38th.

The Horned Frogs will expect to be without Jaden Owens, Sedona Prince, DaiJa Turner and Madison Conner, all with various injuries. This has been the story of the season for this TCU team, notably cancelling games against Kansas State and Iowa State because of these injuries.

With all the injuries, expect to see this starting lineup from the Frogs:

One of the biggest keys to getting the win for TCU will be the 3-point shot. Since installing the 5-out offense ahead of the win against UCF, the Frogs are shooting 44 percent from behind the arc. In their last game against Kansas, TCU knocked down 11 3-pointers, led by Sydney Harris who hit five. That was the 12th time in 21 games the Horned Frogs reached double digit 3-pointers.

The TCU offense will be ran through point guard Una Jonanovic. She ranks second in the Big 12 in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.67). Since replacing injured Jaden Owens, Jonanovic has 17 turnovers to just two turnovers in TCU’s last four games.

Guard Agnes Emma-Nnopu has been amazing on the boards for TCU. She ranks 12th nationally in offensive rebounds among guards 5-11 or shorter (54). Look for Emma-Nnopu to play a big impact in getting extra possessions for the Frogs.

Aaliyah Roberson is averaging 15 points and six assists for TCU over the last five games. She has stepped up in a big way since replacing Sedona Prince in the starting lineup. Expect Roberson to continue to add a boost for the TCU offense.

Roberson will most likely be matched up against Oklahoma’s leading scorer and rebounder Skylar Vann. Vann averages 15.8 points and 7.2 rebounds, so Roberson will have her work cut out for her.

If TCU can win, it will double its overall win total from last season and give new head coach Mark Campbell his first career ranked victory as a head coach. The Horned Frogs haven’t had a Big 12 road win since March 4, 2021 when they beat the same Oklahoma Sooners 83-79.

The game will be broadcasted via Big 12 on ESPN+ by Chad McKee and Kevin Henry. It will also be available on KTCU 88.7 FM by Chris Blake.
