Head coach Candi Whitaker moved to 2-0 to start her tenure at Texas Tech after her teams 64-56 win over the New Mexico Lobos.  She had this to say about the win, It was a great win for us.  I’m really proud of how we played. I thought we played well at times, we had some lapses but we came back. When they came back and made a run, we countered it. It’s a big win for our program and we’re excited to be 2-0.”
