Texas Tech’s Lady Raider basketball team bested Southern Utah Friday night in Lubbock.

The Lady Raiders beat the Thunderbirds 73-54 at the United Spirit Arena in game one of the Basketball Travelers Invitational.

Tech managed to outrebound Southern Utah 49-37, and forced 24 turnovers, resulting in 26 points.

“We obviously didn’t start the half very well but we were able to make our run a little longer,” said Lady Raiders head coach Kristy Curry. “We got some great looks in transition and created some great energy from our defense.”

Tech next takes on Nicholls at noon Saturday, November 24th.
