TEXAS TECH STARTING LINEUP (GAMES STARTED THIS SEASON)
PINK FOR GOOD LUCK
Texas Tech wore its special edition Under Armour uniforms in support of the Play4Kay annual pink game on Wednesday night against West Virginia. The movement helps spread awareness for breast cancer and give support to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Tech is 3-0 in the special pink uniforms.
Texas Tech won its seventh Big 12 Conference game of the season on Wednesday and is off to its best start in Big 12 Conference play in eight years. The Lady Raiders started the 2004-05 season 8-3 through 11 conference games.
Senior guard Monique Smalls started her 124th consecutive game on Wednesday, which dates back to the first game of her freshman season. Smalls is attempting to be the only the second Texas Tech player to start every game all four years. Erin Grant did it from 2002-06 (128). Smalls' 124 consecutive starts is the fifth-longest streak of consecutive starts among all active players in Division I women’s basketball.

Brown now has 958 career points and is looking to become the second 1,000-point scorer this season for Tech. Senior Casey Morris passed the mark on Jan. 5 and now has 1,103 career points.
