Zahna Medley hit six 3-pointers and freshman Jordan Moore had a career-high 16 points to lead TCU to an 80-42 win over Louisiana Monroe on Saturday afternoon at the University Recreation Center.

TCU (6-2) won its 11th consecutive game at home, tying for the third longest streak in school history and the longest since a streak that spanned the 2008-09 through 2010-11 seasons. The Frogs are 20-3 at home in the past two seasons.

Medley’s 3-pointer to open the second quarter gave her 250 for her career, becoming one of only four active players in the nation to reach the mark. She was 3-of-8 from behind the arc and finished with 20 points.

Moore hit 4-of-7 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line. Toree Thompson added 15 points and five assists.

TCU reached the 80-point mark for the fourth time this season in eight games. They reached the mark a total of eight times last season.

ULM (4-3), which earlier this season took LSU to overtime in Baton Rouge, turned the ball over 26 times, resulting in 26 points for TCU.

The Frogs jumped out to a 18-2 lead in the first quarter and led 47-17 at halftime.

Alayshia Hunter was the only player to finish in double figures for the Warhawks.

“We have such a great atmosphere in our gym that we are excited to carry over into the new [Schollmaier] arena,” TCU coach Raegan Pebley said of winning 11 straight at home. “It’s a great home-court advantage that we look forward to carrying over.”
