TCU improved to 7-0 in exhibition games since the 2000 season. Lake Truck dropped to 3-4 during its 10-game exhibition schedule. The team will travel across town to face SMU Monday evening.
The Lady Frogs, ranked No. 31 in the preseason USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll, have 12 days off until they face defending national champion and preseason No. 1 Maryland in College Park.
Everyone on the TCU squad played Sunday afternoon, including newcomers Shayla Moore and Helen Roden. The Frogs had five players on the bench that weren't suited up: junior JimAnne Hejny (foot), Danielle Nunn (shoulder), Emily Carter (foot), Hanna Biernacka (NCAA transfer rules), and Lauren Roberts (NCAA transfer rules).
The Frogs will be back on the hardwood for practice Monday and Tuesday. TCU will have many media visitors over the next few days as representatives from The Mountain Television Network are scheduled to visit with the Lady Frogs.
TCU fans and Lake Truck coaches were impressed with the stroke of rookie Shayla Moore who wowed the crowd with deep 3-pointers. After the game, people praised the smooth shot of the freshman from Denison, Texas.
Lorie Butler-Rayford scored the Lady Frogs first six points of the game.
TCU struggled at the free throw line, completing just 51.5 percent (16-31) of its free shots.
The returning players shot a combined 20-of-40 (50 percent) from the floor.
Exhibition games do not count towards a team's record, season statistics or individual statistics.
