Aug. 10, 2010
VANCOUVER, B.C. - The Texas Tech women's basketball team dominated the second half to win its second game in as many days on its Canada tour as the Lady Raiders defeated the University of British Columbia, 85-49, at War Memorial Gym Tuesday night.
Head coach Kristy Curry inserted four different players into the starting lineup, leaving just one starter from the night before, Monique Smalls. Joining Smalls in the backcourt was Chynna Brown, while Marissa Ashton was at the wing and Shauntal Nobles and Teena Wickett got the start down low.
Tech had a 34-29 lead at the half, but controlled the second half to get the 36-point victory.
Leading the way for the Lady Raiders was Wickett and Casey Morris as both finished with 14 points. Wickett recorded a double-double, grabbing a game-high 10 rebounds. Christine Hyde and Kierra Mallard both scored in double figures with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Antiesha Brown chipped in eight points. Mallard also added eight rebounds.
Next up for Tech is a game at The University of Fraser Valley on Wed., Aug. 11, at 6 p.m. PDT.
