TEXAS TECH STARTING LINEUP (GAMES STARTED THIS SEASON)
ANOTHER CAREER DAY FOR SMALLS
Senior guard Monique Smalls followed her career-high in points and field goals on Thursday night with another impressive performance on Sunday. Smalls hit four, 3-pointers, including three in the second half, for her career-high in threes made in a single game. Smalls led Tech with 14 points - which matches her season average coming into Sunday's game.
Sunday's game marked the 104th consecutive start for senior guard Monique Smalls and ended the streak of 70 consecutive games started by senior guard Casey Morris. Morris had started every game since transferring from Cal and playing her first season with Tech in 2010-11 while Smalls has started every game since her freshman season in 2009-10. Sophomore Amber Battle and senior Mary Bokenkamp each made their first career starts at Texas Tech while senior Christine Hyde started her first game this season.
Both freshman Kellyn Schneider and junior Haley Schneider played their most career minutes (18 and 16, respectively) and found the basket several times on Sunday. Kellyn scored her first points (6) and added five rebounds as well as leading the team in blocks with three. Haley, the oldest of the sister duo, scored four points and had two assists.
ON THE BOARDS
Senior Christine Hyde led Texas Tech in rebounds for the third consecutive games, hitting double-digits for the first time with 10 on Sunday against Lipscomb. Hyde also added six points, one block and one steal in her first start since Feb. 8 at Oklahoma State. Hyde leads the Lady Raiders with an average of 7.3 rebounds per game.
Texas Tech will play host to Southern Utah (6 p.m., Friday), Nicholls State (Noon, Saturday), and New Orleans (2 p.m., Sunday) in the Basketball Travelers Invitational.
