There is excitement around the TCU women’s basketball team as they prepare to keep the momentum going from last year. With a disappointing end to their 2019-2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Horned Frogs are ready to get back to work. After a 22-7 overall record, and a second-place finish in the Big 12 last year, TCU will see six returning players. The roster has four incoming freshmen, along with other additions to their 2020-21 lineup.
Two high profile transfers add to an already impressive roster, that lead to high hopes for the women’s basketball team. One of the first announcements of the additions was Aahliyah Jackson. Jackson is a graduate-student who spent three years playing at Texas A&M. Her best season at Texas A&M was in 2018-19 where she averaged 1.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. The other transfer, Kayla Mokwuah, transfers to TCU after spending two of her college seasons at George Washington. As a sophomore Mokwuah averaged 8.2 points per game. For a total of the season she had 135 rebounds, 24 assists, 17 steals and 28 blocked shots.
These additions along with Lauren Heard, named All-Big 12 first team in 2019-20, form a tough opponent. Following the news of roster additions’ and plans to allow fans back into sporting facilities, anticipation for news about the upcoming 2020-21 schedule is high. So far, the only part of the schedule that fans can plan for is the 2020 SEC/Big 12 Challenge. The TCU women’s basketball team is set to face Missouri in Missouri on Saturday, December 6. The challenge is described as a highlight to non-conference schedule.
