Lady Raiders knock off Penn State


The Texas Tech Lady Raiders kept their perfect start to the season intact this afternoon, knocking off the 16th ranked Lady Lions from Penn State. 

In a closely-contested game, the Lady Raiders held on for the 70-66 win.

It was a back and forth battle between two top 25 teams and at the break Penn State held a 2 point lead. The Lady Raiders used team defense and hot 3-point shooting in the second half to pull off the victory.

Tech senior forward Jordan Barncastle took an inbound bas with her team up 1 point with 2.5 seconds left in the game and 1 second left on the shot clock. She knocked down a 3 to make the score 70-66 and secure the victory for Tech.

The win moves the Lady Raiders record to 7-0 on the year.  Next up for Tech is a home contest against UTA. That game will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday night at the United Spirit Arena.
