Spears scored 14 points for the second straight game while Lizarazu had her first points in three games and fifth game in double figures this season.
Tech (6-19, 0-14 Big 12) found itself in a back-and-forth battle with K-State for much of the game before an 8-0 run late in the second half gave the Lady Raiders its largest lead at 54-48 with 4:12 to play.
Spears and Lizarazu jumpstarted the second half by hitting three, 3-pointers after Tech went 0-for-6 behind the arc in the first half.
K-State (10-14, 4-9) then went on a 12-0 run in the final four minutes of the game while Tech missed its last three shots and turned the ball over four times.
Tech senior forward Haley Schneider scored a career-high eight points and continued her streak of games with a blocked shot (9) with her 43rd on Saturday.
The Lady Raiders will have the next week off before they play their "Play 4 Kay" game and take on No. 12 Oklahoma State (19-4, 8-4) at 2 p.m. on Feb. 25.
