TCU coach Raegan Pebley said she’s looking for the most improvement from her team to come in the month of February.
The Horned Frogs got an early start, knocking off No. 14 Texas at the University Recreation Center on Sunday to earn a split in a two-game homestand that included an 89-67 loss to No. 3 Baylor.
The next three games — in which TCU plays three of the bottom four teams in the Big 12 — could be critical on the road to betterment, beginning Wednesday at West Virginia.
Where TCU has seen the most improvement is at the post or, as Pebley calls it in her system, the pivot position.
Klara Bradshaw, a 6-foot-6 sophomore, tallied 15 points, 11 rebounds and seven blocked shots in the past two games, which included a career-high 26 minutes against Texas.
Jada Butts also contributed in spot minutes of defense against Texas and went 2 for 2 from behind the arc in 10 minutes.
“Consistency is something that is really important to [Bradshaw] and the staff,” Pebley said.
West Virginia is paced offensively by junior Bria Holmes, who averages 19.5 points per game, second in the Big 12. The Mountaineers also boast the conference leader in blocks, Lanay Montgomery, who averages 3.76 per game.
TCU has never beaten West Virginia in seven meetings dating to 1989.
