The Lady Raiders pulled in their fourth-straight win on Sunday against TCU, 53-42, inside the United Spirit Arena, which also pulls Texas Tech (16-4, 6-2 in Big 12 Conference play) into second place in the Big 12.
Starting off slow, the Lady Raiders fell behind in the first half, but pulling out a lead of two points right before the halftime buzzer, 27-25.
"In the first half, it was kind of hard, because, I know for myself, was a foul situation," said Monique Smalls, guard, "but the second half we just looked at, nobody is in foul trouble, nobody is hurt, everybody is healthy, let's go attack them, and that's what we did. And, because of that Chynna was able to get steals, Casey was able to get steals, we were able to get easy shots and fast breaks."
Chynna Brown, once again was force to be reckoned with scoring 23 points and grabbing 11 boards, marking new career-highs in both categories and also registering her first ever double-double.
"I don't pay attention to the score or how many points I've scored," said Brown, "I just want to win and I wouldn't have got those points without my teammates getting me the ball or coming off a screen court or rebound."
Christine Hyde trailed only Chynna Brown in rebounds, Hyde with ten and Brown with twelve.
When asked how it is to see her teammate, Brown, doing so well in the past games, Monique Smalls says that it's really nice to see the hard work paying off for her.
She said that the shooting every day and all the hard work on and off the court as well as in and out of practice is finally coming together and it feels great to see her and her other teammates happy.
The next game for the Lady Raiders is against No. 1 Baylor on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the United Spirit Arena.
