ABOUT THE GAME
The TCU Lady Frogs (13-5, 4-0 C-USA) look to keep their six-game winning streak alive Friday night when they face the Louisville Cardinals (11-5, 2-1 C-USA) in Kentucky at 6 p.m. CST. TCU and Houston are the only undefeated teams left in Conference USA play. TCU picked up a 67-55 victory against USF Friday night in Fort Worth, Texas, and then disposed of UAB 75-34 two days later. Louisville is coming off a 72-71 win at Cincinnati Sunday. The Cardinals' other victory in conference play was against UAB and their one loss came at USF. TCU leads the all-time series with Louisville 3-1 and won the two meetings in Fort Worth last season. In TCU's only other trip to the Bluegrass State in 2003 it was sent packing with a 78-62 defeat.
TCU'S LAST TIME OUT
TCU women's basketball senior forward Sandora Irvin broke the NCAA's single game record for blocks Sunday afternoon in Fort Worth, Texas, in a 75-34 victory over UAB. Irvin blocked 16 shots to break the old record of 15 that was held by Amy Lundquist from Loyola Marymount. Lundquist set her record against Western Kentucky Dec. 20, 1992. As a team, TCU tallied 19 rejections, which tied an NCAA single game record that was first established by New Orleans Feb. 13, 1999, versus Western Kentucky. Irvin scored 20 points and pulled down 18 rebounds as well for the first triple-double in TCU women's basketball history. Earlier in the season, sophomore Natasha Lacy fell just one point shy of accomplishing the feat against Oklahoma. Irvin also dished out six assists and had five steals in the victory over UAB. Junior Vanessa Clementino was the only other Lady Frog in double figures with 13, and she collected six boards as well.
LOUISVILLE'S LAST TIME OUT
Louisville's Jazz Covington made 11-of-13 field goals and 9-of-11 at the free-throw line en route to a 32-point performance in a 72-71 win at Cincinnati Sunday. She hit the game-winning basket for the Cardinals with just 0.9 seconds left in the game after UC's Micah Harvey hit two free throws with 32.6 seconds on the clock. Leslie Knoch was the Bearcats' leading scorer with 16 points.
