The Lady Raiders Host West Virginia on Wednesday Starting at 7pm
The Texas Tech Lady Raider basketball team will look to end a three game losing streak on Wednesday night as they host West Virginia. Candi Whitaker and company fell over the weekend to Oklahoma in Norman by a score of 70-64 to drop them to 12-7 on the season and 2-5 in Big 12 play.
The Lady Raiders have found success not only in its aggressive defense but also outside the arc and on the glass. Tech has hit 15 shots from 3-point land in its last two games while out-rebounding Oklahoma 41-38. It was the third time in four games and sixth overall this season in which Tech finished with 40 rebounds or more. West Virginia (12-7, 2-5) had its own problems defending the glass on Saturday against Kansas. The Mountaineers gave up 20 rebounds to forward Chelsea Gardner and watched its 10-point lead disappear in a 65-59 loss in Lawrence. It was the first loss for WVU since losing to Tech on January 14th in Morgantown.
Tech will be looking to repeat the performance they had when they beat West Virginia in Morgantown by a score of 55-45 back on January 14th. Tipoff for this game is set for 7pm on Wednesday night from the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock
