LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Dominic Seals scored 16 of her career-high 20 points in the second half to help Texas Tech beat No. 18 Arizona State 73-69 on Thursday night.

The victory was Texas Tech's first over a ranked opponent since the Lady Raiders (10-1) beat Nebraska in February.

Jill Noe scored a season-high 20 points to lead Arizona State (5-4).

The game was close throughout the second half, when neither team lead by more than four and the lead changed eight times.

A 10-2 run by Tech gave the Lady Raiders a 63-59 lead with 5 minutes to play, as the Sun Devils went almost four minutes without a field goal.

But Tech never pulled away, and with 7 seconds left Reagan Pariseaus' 3-pointer pulled the Sun Devils to within 70-69.

Maria Moore then missed a pair of free throws, but Arizona State's chance for a comeback ended when Moore drew a charging foul from Noe on the Sun Devils ensuing fast break. Moore tied a season-high with 14 points.

The game was tied at 32 at halftime. A 19-7 run by the Lady Raiders in the first half gave Tech a seven-point lead, its largest of the game, with less than two minutes to play before the break. But the Sun Devils ran off seven in a row to close the half, including a 3-pointer from Noe, to tie the game.

Arizona State's starting point guard Dymond Simon left the game with 13:54 to play in the second half when she injured her left knee. She did not return.
