The Horned Frogs are arriving to postseason play at the right time. Winning four of their last five games, TCU (19-10, 6-12 Big 12) has found new success with a healthier roster.

Big 12 Tournament Matchup and Previous Encounter

The Frogs secured the No. 9 seed in the Big 12 tournament, setting the stage for their upcoming match against the No. 8 seed Oklahoma State (14-15, 7-11 Big 12) in the second round of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship on Friday, March 8 at 1:30 p.m. CT. TCU currently ranks 45th in the NET rankings, while the Cowgirls rank 58th.

In the Jan. 6 game, Oklahoma State defeated TCU 67-59 in Fort Worth. Madison Conner led the Frogs with 20 points in the loss, while forward Praise Egharevba led the Cowgirls with 14.

Key Players and Matchup

That was the first of 11 games star center Sedona Prince missed for the Frogs. This time against the Cowgirls, the Horned Frogs will be with both Prince and Conner.

Conner and Prince were the top-two scorers in the Big 12 all year and were awarded with All-Big 12 honors. Conner was named to the All-Big 12 second team while Prince received All-Big 12 honorable mention. The two have proven to be one of the best duos in all of college basketball, and they will undoubtedly be the focal point for the Frogs’ success in the tournament.

The Frogs seem to have found the lineup that works for them. Therefore, expect this to be the starting five on Friday:

Oklahoma State is led by star center Hannah Gusters. As a senior from Dallas, she leads the Cowgirls with 15 points per game on 57.8% shooting from the field. The matchup against Prince will be one to watch, as it will be instrumental in determining who will come out with the victory.

Transitioning to the overall narrative of TCU’s season, it’s been a rollercoaster ride. Despite facing injuries and holding open tryouts, the fact that they are in a position to make a postseason tournament is an incredible story. Moreover, what Mark Campbell has done in his first year as head coach has put the Horned Frogs in a place to succeed for years to come.

Tyler Denning and Andrea Lloyd will broadcast the game via Big 12 Now on ESPN+.It will also be available on KTCU 88.7 FM by Jeff Williams. If TCU wins, they advance to play No. 1 seed Oklahoma Saturday, March 4 at 1:30 p.m. CT.
