FORT WORTH, Texas - After dropping its last two games of a three-game road trip, the TCU women's basketball team will look to end its losing skid by returning to the friendly confines of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum on Wednesday to face New Mexico at 6:30 p.m.
TCU (13-6, 3-2 Mountain West Conference) has been perfect at home this season with a 10-0 record and is currently in the midst of a school-record 15-game home winning streak.
New Mexico (12-6, 2-3 MWC) enters Wednesday's game with a two-game winning streak after picking up conference wins against Colorado State and Air Force last week.
Wednesday's game will be televised on the .mtn with Mike Evans (play-by-play) and Andrea Lloyd Curry (analyst) calling the action.

TCU is coming off consecutive losses for the first time since November when the Lady Frogs dropped the first three games of the regular season at the BTI Classic. Prior to losing its last two games, TCU had won seven straight and was defeating opponents by 24.0 points per game. Its streak was also the longest since 2003.
Entering Wednesday's contest, junior guard Adrianne Ross needs just five points to reach 1,000 in her career. By reaching 1,000, Ross will become just the ninth player in school history to reach 1,000 points and second this season after teammate Ashley Davis (1,333).
