FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Helena Sverrisdottir scored 19 points to lead No. 24 TCU to a 78-59 win over Wyoming on Saturday.

It was the 20th straight home victory for the Lady Frogs (19-5, 9-2 Mountain West) to set a new school record. TCU hasn't lost at home since Jan. 13, 2009.

Wyoming (15-8, 6-5) led 20-19 midway through the first half, but then TCU went on a 22-6 run over the next 9 minutes to take control. The Lady Frogs led 41-26 at the half.

They just kept going in the second half and expanded the lead to as many as 31 late in the game. It was a little easier victory than TCU's last game when the Lady Frogs outlasted Utah 105-96 in four overtimes.

Emma Langford led Wyoming with 16 points, and Hillary Carlson finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Quotes from Wyoming Head Coach Joe Legerski

"TCU was excellent in all phases of the game. For the first ten minutes, we matched that intensity and I was happy with the start. As our opportunities to score diminished TCU's confidence started to grow. I was pleased with the effort of our young players. Chaundra (Sewell), Sara (Wilson) and Bec (Campigli) gained some valuable experience in a difficult setting."
