LAS VEGAS -- Helena Sverrisdottir scored a game-high 25 points and the TCU defense held New Mexico to 23.7 percent shooting as the Horned Frogs defeated the Lobos in a Mountain West Conference tournament semifinal Friday, 61-40.
It's the first MWC title appearance for the Frogs (22-9). They'll meet fourth-seed Utah, which beat TCU in the semifinals last year when the Frogs were the top seed after winning the regular-season title. The game is at 3 p.m. (CST) at Thomas & Mack Center here in Las Vegas.
Micah Garoutte scored 10 points and Briesha Wynn and Rachel Rentschler each had eight points.
The Frogs were playing without starters Starr Crawford and Antoinette Thompson, who didn't make the trip to Las Vegas due to injuries.
