Lady Raiders Drop Final Road Game, 68-62

Texas Tech did not have enough to overcome Brittany Chambers 31-point performance on Saturday afternoon.

For the third consecutive game senior Chynna Brown eclipsed the 20-point mark, but it wasn't enough to propel the Lady Raiders to their fourth-straight victory, falling 68-62 to Kansas State on Saturday.

 

Brown finished the game 9-for-14 for 22 points, marking the 17th time out of the last 18 games the Dallas native has scored in double figures.

 

In total, Texas Tech (21-8, 11-6 in Big 12 Conference play) had four players reach double digits, but it didn't compare to the performance that Kansas State senior Brittany Chambers put on in her final home game at Bramlage Coliseum.

 

Chambers turned in her second-straight 30-point outing, scoring a career-high 36 points against West Virginia on Tuesday, going 12-for-19 from the field and 5-for-7 from beyond the arc for 31 points.

 

Teammates Brianna Craig and Chantay Caron were the only other Wildcats (14-15, 5-12) to reach double digits, scoring 14 and 10 respectively, helping Kansas State snap a four-game losing skid.

 

The Lady Raiders will now try and win their final home game of the regular season on Monday as Oklahoma comes to Lubbock for the series finale.

 

The Sooners won the first meeting of the season, 65-55 on January 12 in Norman, and look to spoil Tech's senior night with a season sweep.

 

If the Lady Raiders win on Monday, or if Oklahoma loses their game on Saturday night against Kansas, Tech will secure the third seed for the Big 12 tournament, which starts Friday in Dallas inside the American Airlines Center.

 

Tech and Oklahoma are set for a 7 p.m. first tip inside the United Spirit Arena.
