TCU has lost its last three games, but all that won’t matter if they can pull off the upset versus the No. 7 Texas Longhorns on Saturday afternoon. It’s the final time the two teams will play one another as conference foes.

A victory for the Frogs would be the biggest win of the season, as well as possibly the most significant in recent program history. The last ranked win for TCU came against No. 18 Texas A&M back on Dec. 12, 2021. Additionally, TCU hasn’t beaten a top-10 team since Jan. 10, 2018, when they won at home against a Longhorns team that was also ranked seventh. If the Frogs were to win over Texas, it would be their fourth-ever win over a top-10 opponent.

TCU (15-7, 2-9 Big 12) played well in its last game at Oklahoma, but the lack of depth came back to haunt them again. Questions still loom in the air about the availability of Madison Conner, who has been out with an undisclosed knee injury since the game against UCF on Jan. 23. Her potential presence on the court down the stretch run of the season, combined with the possibility of Sedona Prince’s return, could make the Frogs a tough matchup in the late going.

It doesn’t look like they’ll be playing in the game versus Texas however, which means that the Frogs will once again have to rely on their short rotation of players to pull off the upset.

Sydney Harris has been one of the biggest offensive weapons for the Frogs in the last several games. She’s averaged 11.3 points in her seven games this season. She’s also shooting 46 percent from behind the three-point line. 

On the other side of the ball, Madison Booker, Rori Harmon, Taylor Jones and Shaylee Gonzales are the most prolific offensive scores that Texas (21-3, 8-3) has to offer. Booker, a freshman from Ridgeland, Miss., leads the team in scoring with 14.4 points per game. Harmon is second with 14.1 with Jones following close behind at 14.0. Rounding out the pack is Gonzales, who is averaging 10.5 points per contest.

On top of gaining a significant ranked win, there’s a lot more to gain for TCU. For one, a victory over the Longhorns would be Campbell’s first ranked win as a head coach. It would also be the highest-ranked Big 12 victory in the 12 seasons that TCU has been a member of the conference. Most significant is the fact that a win would drastically improve the Frogs’ chance of making a postseason tournament (probably the WNIT) once the regular season concludes.

Tip-off is at 4 p.m. CST on Saturday, Feb. 10 from Schollmaier Arena. The game will stream on Big 12 Now on ESPN+. It’ll also be available on 88.7 KTCU FM with Chris Blake on the call.
