The other key player in the Texas Tech offense is point guard Erin Grant. Grant is well known for her passing, but she has shown her ability to score when necessary, including two big games against Texas. Grant can gain penetration against any defender in the country, as she showed against Oklahoma, when she scored at will in the final two minutes. Grants role has certainly been important, but the sophomore needs to score even more points earlier in the game. Grant has the ability to take over a game, and if she can score early, her assist numbers will surely skyrocket late in games.
The biggest question mark on offense is the post players. Oklahoma used a sagging defense to shut down the Texas Tech post game. The obvious candidates for scoring potential are LaToya Davis and Jametra Clark. Both players have shown an ability to score against a variety of defenses. The only question nwith these two is their defensive ability. Casey Jackson is a difference maker at times, but her size is a limiting factor, especially against teams that have a powerful post game. Greenwalt and Ayers-Curry have had good games on offense, but their biggest contribution is on the defensive end. Both players like to take jumpers from ten to fifteen feet out, which is hard to do against a sagging defense. Someone in this group of five players has to step up and create offense if the Lady Raiders are going to have any success in the post season.
