The Horned Frogs finished the quarter on a 12-1 run to extend the lead to 21-10 after 10 minutes. TCU maintained the momentum into the second quarter with a 13-2 run to extend the lead to 22 points, 34-12. From that point forward, the Frogs held a 19-point lead at the minimum, leading by as much as 38.A major factor in TCU’s ability to extend the lead was their bench scoring. TCU had four players in double figures, three came off the bench. Forward Amy Okonkwo led all scorers with 19 points, five rebounds, and a career-high five steals. Forward Adeola Akomolafe recorded 12 points and guard Sydney Coleman tallied 11 points. TCU scored a total of 52 points off the bench.In addition to the 52 bench points, the Horned Frogs outscored Northwestern State 52-20 in the paint.“We had some objectives that we really wanted to meet,” TCU head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Obviously winning the game was one of them, but we also wanted to have a lot of fun and wanted to put a whole game together. I felt like we did that and we were able to accomplish it with a lot of players seeing significant minutes.”The entire TCU roster saw the court and collected at least 13 minutes in the game.The Horned Frogs will finish the non-conference portion of their schedule against the Hampton Pirates. Hampton has collected six of the last eight MEAC conference titles and opened their season with a win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. Tip-off at Schollmaier Arena is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Robbie Vaglio Facebook I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.
