Twister Sisters Before the Storm: Texas Tech pt. 2

Senior Day special.

Last Time Out

Iowa State’s comeback bid fell short against Kansas, 98-93. The Cyclones had a 16-game winning streak against the Jayhawks coming in.

Ashley Joens had a casual 33-point-14-rebound game to lead the way, as Denae Fritz wasn’t too far behind with a career-high 26 points.

About Texas Tech

The Red Raiders sit at 18-12 overall, with a 6-12 mark in Big 12 play. They are currently projected to miss the NCAA Tournament, according to ESPN’s Charlie Creme.

Texas Tech doesn’t do anything spectacular on the offensive end, but they do everything about as well as a non-tournament team could. Top-100 in most shooting stats and their pace and points per possession are very solid.

Their defense, however, ranks well outside of the top 200 in the country. They have struggled to defend all year, giving up 67 points per game.

Opponent Player to Watch

Bre’Amber Scott has led the Red Raiders this year, as she is the only player averaging double-digits. The Mississippi State transfer is scoring an even 17 points per game, while snagging 6.2 boards per game. The last time these teams matched up, Scott dropped 18 and 5 in the Cyclones’ victory in Lubbock.
