The last time the TCU women’s basketball team played an Iowa State team that was ranked No. 23, the Horned Frogs scored an upset in their home finale last season.

TCU (12-9, 3-6 Big 12) hopes it can replicate that success at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Ames to snap a three-game losing streak and end a skid in which the Frogs have lost five of their last six.

The Cyclones (16-5, 5-5) will be the third straight ranked opponent to go up against the Frogs. Iowa State center Hallie Christofferson comes in averaging 19.5 points per game, second in the Big 12.

Iowa State’s offense ranks third in the conference in scoring with 76.1 points per game and second in 3-point percentage at 34.8. The Cyclones are coming off an 84-65 beating of Kansas State on Saturday in which Nikki Moody had 20 points to lead four Iowa State scorers in double figures.

The Frogs will try to counter the Cyclones’ attack with the nation’s 20th-ranked scoring defense that holds opponents to an average of 57.4 points. TCU is also fourth nationally with an average of 6.4 blocks per game.

TCU center Latricia Lovings had seven blocks in Saturday’s 66-62 loss to West Virginia, marking her fourth Big 12 game with at least six blocks.

But Iowa State had little trouble putting up points against TCU earlier this season in Fort Worth in the both teams’ Big 12 opener, a 71-49 rout led by Nicole Blaskowsky’s 24-point effort.
