Since Baylor's 79-55 win over the Horned Frogs in Fort Worth Jan. 12, TCU has been one of the hottest teams in the Big 12 taking six of their last seven games. The Horned Frogs beat Texas Tech twice in that span and also had wins over OU, Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State. TCU's 7-4 record in league play places them in fifth, just half a game behind ISU and WVU, who are tied for third. Three players average in double figures for the Horned Frogs with Jordan Moore leading the charge at 16.3 points per contest. Moore had a double-double last time out vs. Baylor with 11 points and 10 boards while Amy Okonkwo had 20 points in the loss for Baylor.
   A Baylor win vs. TCU Saturday would mark the 34th-straight win over a Big 12 opponent in the regular season. The only streak longer in Big 12 history was when the Lady Bears won 44-straight from 2011-14. In addition, Baylor has not lost at the Ferrell Center since Feb. 6, 2017 (vs. Texas 85-79) and a win Saturday would be the 33rd-straight in front of the Waco-friendly crowd.
   While some may look at the fact that Baylor has surrendered 180 3-point field goals this season (most by a Big 12 school) as a negative, take into account that only 430 of 1,167 points given up by Baylor this season have come on two-point field goals. That' s just 215 two-pointers in 21 games, which averages a hair above 10 2-point field goals per game or 20.5 points per game given up inside the 3-point arc this season.
