LUBBOCK, Texas – The Texas Tech Lady Raider basketball team fell, 75-48, on Saturday night on the road to Oklahoma State at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Lady Raiders (6-3, 1-2 Big 12) were led by Vivian Gray, who posted her second-straight double-double and her third double-double in her last four games, finishing with 12 points and 10 rebounds along with three blocks and three assists.
Lexi Gordon finished with 12 points as well with four rebounds and an assist. Najé Murray finished with eight points, five rebounds and three assists. Bryn Gerlich pulled down six rebounds along with scoring
Tech battled tough on the boards, despite a strong OSU presence down low, as the Lady Raiders outrebounded the Cowgirls, 48-47; however, 21 turnovers for the Lady Raiders compared to only six for the Cowgirls proved to be costly in a tough road loss for Tech.
Texas Tech fell down by as many as 14 in the first half, as the Cowgirls were led by 19 points from Ja'Mee Asberry in the opening 20 minutes of action. Oklahoma State used a 9-0 run in the first quarter to create separation and would go on to lead, 38-24, heading to halftime.
The Lady Raiders couldn't get their shots to fall in the second half to cut into the Cowgirl lead, and Oklahoma State held Tech at bay for the win.
The Lady Raiders will return home to continue their conference schedule on Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Oklahoma at United Supermarkets Arena.
