Caught this one on TV on Fox Sports SW. Tech announcers were, um, interesting.
Texas Tech shot 100% from the field in the first 3:31 of the Women’s Bouncy Ball game on Sunday afternoon in Lubbock. Unfortunately for the Lady Raiders, that was 1/1 after turnovers on 4 straight possessions leading to a 10-0 A&M lead before Recee Caldwell hit a 3 pointer. The score after 1 quarter was 34-5 despite 0 points from Khaalia Hillsman. Jasmine Lumpkin hit was scoring, Danni Williams was hitting 3s, and Tech couldn’t stop Chennedy Carter on drives. Anriel Howard hit 2 3-pointers!
Tech never really mounted a serious run even though the Ags cooled off after the first quarter. Coach Blair got significant minutes from the bench but often had a sub working with 3-4 starters.
A&M transfer Jada Terry fouled out before the 3rd quarter was over. I thought the one bright spot for Tech Coach Candi Whitaker was the play of 6th woman 6-5 Soph F Brittany Brewer, who had 12 points, 7 boards, and 4 blocked shots.
Danni Williams fans from her hometown of Clovis, NM showed up in Lubbock
The Ags finish the month of November by playing Tues and Wed night at home. I’ll probably only do one writeup for both.
- Prairie View (2-3) - Tues Nov 28, 2017
- Rice - Wed Nov 29, 2017
- Both at Reed at 7PM
- Both will stream on SECN+ and be on 1150AM/102.7FM for local radio.
The Prairie View Panthers opened by beating UT-Tyler and Arlington Baptist and then lost 3 in a row on the road. The last two were part of the Feast of Sharing Tournament at UT-Rio Grande Valley, which were Saturday and Sunday.
Rice opened the season with 5 wins but suffered their first loss on Sunday at Kansas.
