Lady Frogs to Play Tulane on ESPN2 Sunday Afternoon
Feb. 22, 2003
FORT WORTH, Texas - The Lady Frogs (13-12, 6-5 C-USA) are on the road for their final regular season C-USA road contest Sunday. Sunday's game at Tulane (17-7, 8-3 C-USA) will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2 beginning at 1:00 p.m. with Cara Capuano and Carol Ross calling the action.
TCU head coach Jeff Mittie needs just one more win to become the all-time winningest coach in TCU history. He is currently tied with Hall of Famer Fran Garmon with 78.
Tulane is led by pre-season All-Conference USA pick Teana McKiver who is averaging 11.8 points per contest. Gwen Slaughter has pulled down 219 boards this season, good for 9.5 per game.
Helping her teammates out is Kelly Nadeau who's dished out a team-high 72 assists and swiped 51 steals in 2002-03.
Tulane has only five players who have converted on a three-point attempt this season. Muci Haris leads the field with 44, while Nadeau has 32. Britt Themann (30), Delacey Joseph (14) and D'Aundra Henry (2) are the other three players.
This is the sixth meeting between the two schools. Tulane holds a 4-1 series lead. Last season the Green Wave won a pair of overtime games against the Lady Frogs, first in Fort Worth (63-59, Feb. 10) and then in Chicago in the C-USA semis (80-76, Mar. 3).
