Saturday's match up between the Texas Tech Lady Raider Basketball team and the top ranked Baylor Lady Bears will be the first appearance for Baylor's Brittney Griner since punching Tech' Jordan Barncastle in the face last season.

Tip off for the Lady Raiders and Lady Bears is set for 12:30 from the United Spirit Arena. The crowd for Saturday's match up should be one of the bigger ones all season that have been seen inside of the USA.

Most fans are hoping that one, or both, of two things will happen.

  1. The Lady Raiders will pull the upset and beat the top ranked Baylor Lady Bears.
  2. Barncastle will have her revenge on Griner.

Barncastle and the Lady Raiders can both have their cake and eat it too with just a win. No punches will need to be thrown. No cheap shots need to be landed, and no unsportsmanlike conduct needs to be shown. Beating the top ranked team should be enough of a slap in the face to Baylor.

Check out the punch from last year's match up.
