LUBBOCK, Texas — The Texas Tech women’s basketball team returns to United Spirit Arena on Sunday for its second game of Big 12 Conference play this season against TCU at 1 p.m.
The Lady Raiders (6-6, 0-1 Big 12) are looking to rebound from its conference home opening loss to No. 22 Oklahoma on Thursday night while the Horned Frogs (9-4, 0-1) are playing their first conference road game after losing at home to No. 10 Iowa State on Thursday.
The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports Southwest.
Texas Tech and TCU are meeting for the 41st time overall. This will be the second season the former Southwest Conference foes will meet as Big 12 Conference opponents. Texas Tech has dominated the series overall, losing only once in the second round of the WNIT in 2008.
Tech swept both games last season and is 16-1 at home against TCU since the series began in 1980.
The game matches up two of the best guards in the conference with Tech’s Amber Battle and TCU’s Zahna Medley.
Battle is fourth in the conference in scoring with 17.8 points per game while leading the Big 12 in both rebounds (9.0 rpg) and defensive rebounds (6.8 rpg). She’s scored in 11 of Tech’s 12 games – four times eclipsing the 20-point mark.
Medley leads the Horned Frogs in scoring and is the sixth leading scorer in the Big 12 Conference with 16.7 points per game. She has scored in double figures in nine of TCU’s 13 games, including five games of 20 points or more. Medley is the second-fastest player in program history to record 100 career 3-pointers and already has hit 31 this season.
Fans are also invited to stay after the game and meet players and coaches with the second meeting of the “Run and Gun Club.”
Tickets are still available at www.TexasTech.com/tickets or by calling (806) 742-8324.
