Texas Tech got off to a quick start, but
The Lady Raiders came to life in the second half. It all started with a much improved defensive effort that led to good looks on the offensive end.
With the exception of Jia Perkins, the Lady Raiders struggled for most of the first half. In the second half, the Texas Tech offense got improved production from the entire team. Jia Perkins led the Lady Raiders with 21 points. Plenette Pierson scored 16 points in the game. Natalie Ritchie made 2 three pointers on her way to 11 points. The Lady Raiders can't afford to have another slow start tomorrow against
Texas Tech played spectacular defense in the second half. Maybe the six days off had an effect in the first half, but the Lady Raiders were playing great defense once the second half started. The Lady Raiders have relied on their defense all season, but it becomes even more important in the postseason. It's a nice safety net in case the offense has some problems during a game. If the Lady Raiders can continue to play great defense, they will have a chance to win every game they play during the postseason.
