BYU's 20th-ranked women's basketball team is on a collision course with talented Mountain West Conference newcomer TCU in tonight's meeting in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Cougars (15-1 overall, 5-0 MWC) boast a seven-game win streak, an unbeaten league record and a perfect 8-0 in all road games to date.

By comparison, the host Horned Frogs (10-6, 4-1) have only one loss at home — a 68-67 defeat at Wyoming — and claim a 76-67 upset over Mountain West favorite and then-No. 18 New Mexico. Four of TCU's six losses have been to Top 25 teams — Duke, Georgia, Oklahoma and Southern California.

BYU has been flexing its defensive muscles of late, holding its last two opponents to sub-23 percent shooting from the floor. The Cougars are No. 3 nationally in field goal percentage and No. in scoring defense, allowing opponents to shoot 33.3 percent and score 52.3 points a game. They're also 15th in scoring margin with an average 15.1-point difference. The Cougars will need to play its best defense against a quick, athletic and talented TCU team, which features three of the conference's 10 leading scorers in Natasha Lacy (eighth at 13.7 points a game), Adrianne Ross (ninth, 13.2) and Ashley Davis (10th, 12.5). Ross has reached double-figure scoring in six straight games and eight of the Frogs' last nine.

BYU counters with senior forward Ambrosia Anderson, whose 19.4 scoring average is tops in the league and 21st in the nation. She has reached double figures in all 16 games and has hit a trey in the Cougars' last 10 contests.

UTAH: Senior forward Kim Smith picked up a MWC Player of the Week award after scoring 24 points and grabbing 5.5 rebounds in two wins that got the Utes back on track. Utah, now 13-4 overall and 4-2 in the MWC, doesn't have another game until Saturday when the Utes, winners of four straight, travel to TCU to take on the Horned Frogs.

UTAH STATE: The Aggies, still looking for their first WAC win, make a long trip to Hawaii for a Thursday night game against the Wahine. Losers of nine straight, the Aggies are paced by Taylor Richards and Ali Marchant who both score 10.1 points per game.

WEBER STATE: The Wildcats are tied for first in the Big Sky race after a pair of wins last week. Junior guard Chelsey Warburton, from Price, had one of the best shooting weekends in the school history in the wins over Portland State and Eastern Washington as she made 13 3-pointers. This week, the Wildcats (9-8 overall, 3-1 Big Sky) host rival Idaho State Thursday night at 7:05 p.m.

UTAH VALLEY STATE: Coming off a 74-59 defeat last week at Nevada, the Wolverines (7-11) remain winless on the road for the season with two more away games at hand.

UVSC starts a two-game California road trip with a Thursday night game at Cal State Fullerton (5-12), which is fresh off its own road defeat — a 73-66 loss at UC Irvine last week. Like the Wolverines, the Titans are winless on the road in their 11 outings to date.

Utah Valley State follows with a Saturday afternoon game at UC Riverside.

SOUTHERN UTAH: The Thunderbirds play host to Chicago Saturday at 5:15 p.m. as they try to win their first game in 10 tries.
