LUBBOCK, Texas – A 26-point fourth quarter wasn't enough to overcome TCU as the Lady Raiders fell, 72-60, on Wednesday night.
After a tough first half, Texas Tech (7-20, 1-15 Big 12) outscored TCU (18-9, 9-7 Big 12) 43-34 in the final two periods of the game.
The Lady Raiders kept it close with a 19-12 first quarter, but TCU held Tech to just five points in the second quarter while doubling their score.
With 4:46 left in the game, the Lady Raiders went on a 17-5 run sparked by a jumper in the paint by freshman Angel Hayden. Freshman Lyndsey Whilbyhit back-to-back three-pointers to cut TCU's lead down to 14. But the 26-15 quarter wasn't enough to overcome the deficit.
Senior Jada Terry led the team with 12 points and 10 rebounds and a block. She led the team going 6-for-8 from the free throw line. Sophomore Erin DeGratewas the leading scorer with 14 points and six rebounds. Zuri Sanders recorded her third double-digit point game of the season with 10 points against the Horned Frogs.
