The Texas Tech Lady Raiders beat West Virginia 76-63 at the United Spirit Arena. The win snapped a 2-game losing streak for the Lady Raiders.

Casey Morris led the Lady Raiders with 20 points and she went 9/9 from the free throw line. Monique Smalls and Kelsi Baker both scored 13 points.  As a team, the Lady Raiders shot 36 of 42 from the free throw line.

The Lady Raiders had a 29-17 lead at halftime, which was spurred by an 11-4 run by the Lady Raiders.

The second half was marked by many fouls being called against West Virginia and trips to the free throw line for Texas Tech. In the second half alone, the Lady Raiders shot 31/35 from the charity stripe. The frustration over the foul calls boiled over in the final minute of the game as the West Virginia bench was called for two consecutive technical fouls.

“We’ve talked a lot the past two days about pushing back,” Texas Tech head coach Kristy Curry said. “You’ve got to have a ‘push’ mentality with everything you do … I’m really proud of sticking with the game plan like the kids did.”

West Virginia had a tough time shooting from long range. Mountaineer 3-point shooting was 7/24 for the game.
