Season of firsts

After winning the Conference USA regular-season title with a 12-2 record in their first season in the league, the Lady Frogs hoopsters defeated Big Ten Tournament champion Indiana, 55-45, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Despite losing to top-seeded Duke in the second round, TCU held on to the 25th position in the year-end USA Today/ESPN Coaches' Poll to finish the season nationally-ranked for the first time in school history.

TCU finished the campaign with a 24-7 record, which was the second-highest win total in school history and the best winning percentage in the program's annals (.774). The Lady Frogs also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year, claimed their second consecutive conference championship and have now posted back-to-back 20-win seasons.
