The Lady Raiders (11-10, 2-8 Big12) beat the  Kansas Jayhawks (5-16,0-10) on Saturday, Jan 30, 2016.  What Tech lacked in points from the field they made up for it at the free-throw line. The Lady Raiders were only 38.6% accurate on their field-goals but were 85% accurate at the charity stripe.  The good news is that Tech came out scoring and went on a 8-2 run to start the game off on a good foot. Japreece Dean and Ivonne CookTaylor were the leaders on scoring with 21 points and 16 respectively.  The Lady Raiders did an excellent job of shutting down the 3-Pt range for the very accurate Jayhawks. Tech was fouled 20 times in the game and made 17 of the points while limiting the fouls to Kansas to only five. The Lady Raiders need to find away to get into the paint more and to fight for the rebounds.

 



The Lady Raiders take on the West Virginia Mountaineers (16-6, 5-4 Big12) at 6pm CST at “The USA” in Lubbock, TX.  This will be the 2nd meeting this season.  Tech lost in Morgantown on Jan 9th 2015 (79-57).  The Lady Raiders hold 2-1 advantage over the Mountaineers when the game is in Lubbock. I hope the record stands tonight.  West Virginia has a lot of depth and it doesn’t matter if the starters are on the floor or the bench players, they can all score.  West Virginia’s 31.6 bench points per game leads the Big12 conference. WVU is 16-4 this season when outscoring the opponent’s bench. The Lady Raiders need to find away to shut down Bria Holmes, who is the Mountaineers high scorer and is the 5th best in the Big12 conference.  Texas Tech will need to play hard defense and especially cover the 3-Pt arch as the Mountaineers have increased their 3-Pt production from 4.6 per game last season to 6.0 per game so far this year. Tech needs to control the game and push for points-in-the-paint and making points off turnovers. It will be tough on the boards as WVU is the best in the Big12 averaging 5.88 Blocks per game. The Lady Raiders need to limit their fouls and they need to be accurate in their attempts on the basket.

Focus on the game at hand

Get the Win ….. Wreck’Em !!!!

Improvement is the word this season.
