Nov. 29, 2008
LUBBOCK, Texas - Four players led Texas Tech with double-digit figures in scoring and the Lady Raider bench totaled 17 points, but it wasn't enough to stave off a late second-half rally by South Florida as the Bulls took a 71-61 win over Tech in the final game of the Paradise Jam tournament at St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.
Texas Tech (4-3) led South Florida (6-1) 54-50 with 8:08 to play in the second half, before the Bulls out-scored the Lady Raiders 21-7 down the stretch for the win. South Florida led 31-29 at the half and both teams switched leads early on in the second as Tech topped off with its biggest lead of the game at four points.
Keisha Walker led the Lady Raiders with 15 points off the bench, while Dominic Seals added 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Ashlee Roberson and Tiny Henderson chipped in 14 and 11 points, respectively, as Roberson also added six boards. Henderson was perfect from three-point range on three attempts.
Shantia Grace led South Florida with 15 points and added seven rebounds, while Porche Grant grabbed eight boards.
