TCU Faces Winner of USF-Southern Miss at C-USA Tourney
Feb. 27, 2005
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The TCU Lady Frogs (20-9, 10-4 C-USA) enter the Conference USA Women's Basketball Tournament as the No. 4 seed and face the winner of USF-Southern Miss. The top four seeds in the event, which takes place over March 3-6 in Charlotte, N.C., at Dale F. Halton Arena, have first-round byes. The Lady Frogs are scheduled to play at 2:30 p.m. CST Friday, March 4.
TCU and Houston finished the regular season tied for third with records of 10-4 in league play. Since both squads were 1-1 against each other and their wins and losses were to the same teams, representatives from the C-USA office conducted a draw following Houston's win over TCU Sunday.
Two pieces of paper with the names of each school were placed inside a box and then shaken up. Brenda Weare, C-USA Senior Associate Commissioner, drew Houston's name first, giving the Lady Cougar's the No. 3 seed and TCU the four.
DePaul earned the No. 1 seed by finishing with a 13-1 record. Louisville got the No. 2 spot thanks to an 11-3 mark. USF was seeded fifth followed by Charlotte, Marquette, East Carolina, Memphis, UAB, Cincinnati and Southern Miss.
The schedule of play for the tournament is listed below.
