LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- LaToya Davis scored a career-high 33
points and had eight rebounds to lead Texas Tech past Oral Roberts
99-58 on Thursday.
Davis had 25 points in the first half, nearly matching her
previous career high of 26 before halftime. Davis twice scored 26
in her career, the last time on Nov. 21 against Rice.
Erin Myrick and Erin Grant each scored 17 points for the Lady
Raiders (3-5), and Grant added 11 assists for a double-double. All
five Texas Tech starters scored in double digits in the game.
Jenny Hardin topped all scorers for Oral Roberts (4-4) with 14.
The Lady Raiders led in nearly every aspect of the game,
especially shooting percentage.
Texas Tech shot 62.5 percent from the field and 57.1 percent
from 3-point range, while Oral Roberts went 37.5 percent from the
field and 27.8 percent on 3-pointers.
That high shooting percentage was aided by Davis, who dominated
the paint by scoring all of her points on layups or free throws and
going 13-of-16 from the field.
The Lady Raiders also led in rebounds, 43-23, and assists, 25-8.
Texas Tech's lead was 13 at halftime, but the Lady Raiders
pulled away in the second half, closing the game on a 24-7 run.
In the first half, the Lady Raiders used a 17-4 run to increase
their lead, but the Golden Eagles had a small comeback after
hitting back-to-back 3-pointers. That was quickly answered by Davis
who scored all of the Lady Raiders' points on an 11-3 run.
The Lady Raiders were coming off a double-overtime loss to Penn
