The Kansas State women's basketball team beat TCU Wednesday night due to a forfeit by the Horned Frogs. The game will go down as a no contest and per NCAA policy will not affect K-State's overall record.
TCU forfeited the game due to a shortage of healthy student-athletes. The Horned Frogs just lost point guard Jaden Owens to a torn ACL and meniscus against Houston on Saturday. This forfeit will however improve Kansas State's conference record as they improve to 6-0. The Horned Frogs are also forfeiting their game against Iowa State as well on Saturday.
TCU is holding open tryouts for anyone to come out and be a walk-on for the remainder of the 2023-2024 women's basketball season.
The Wildcats hold a narrow lead over Iowa State, who due to the forfeit will also move to 6-0 in the conference. The Wildcats remain in first place due to their overall record of 17-1.
K-State will now turn to their next opponent, in-state rival Kansas, who they are set to play Saturday, January 20. The Wildcats are coming off a big win over No. 10 Texas at home. It was a close 61-58 victory over the Longhorns. That win marked their third win over a ranked opponent this season.
The Wildcats reached their highest ranking since 2002 coming in at No.7. They hope to not only win the conference championship this season but make it to the big dance behind leader Ayoka Lee. Lee and the Kansas State defense are making national headlines. They are the only team to Caitlyn Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
