After sticking with No. 1 Notre Dame for three quarters on Saturday before falling 92-59 in South Bend, Ind., TCU comes back to Schollmaier Arena on Wednesday for a matinee against Butler.
Tip-off is scheduled for noon to accommodate the Fort Worth school district’s field trip day.
Point guard AJ Alix continued her torrid shooting from distance at Notre Dame, hitting 3 of 5 3-pointers and scoring a team-high 16 points in the first loss of the season. The junior has now hit 11 of 17 from 3-point range in TCU’s last three games after starting the season in a 1-of-9 funk during the first two games.
Before the loss, TCU (4-1) had been holding teams to just under 48 points per game. Butler (2-2) averages just over 60 points per contest.
Never miss a local story.
