Lady Raiders fall to Texas

Senior Day for Shauntal Nobles and Haley Schneider ended in all too familiar fashion, as the Lady Raiders (6-22, 0-17) dropped their 18th straight game Saturday, 67-64 to Texas (19-10, 10-7).

It was another hard-fought, down to wire affair for Candi Whitaker's team, but poor shooting doomed Texas Tech's chances. The Lady Raiders shot 44 percent (25-56) for the game, but just 33 percent (3-9) from three and an ugly 58 percent (11-19) from the charity stripe, including critical ones late in the game.

Schneider shined in her final home game, posting 14 points with five rebounds and seven blocks. Amber Battle also added 14 points, seven rebounds, five assists to help lead the way for the Lady Raiders. Ivonne Cook-Taylor scored 14 as well.

Nneka Enemkpali, Imani McGee-Stafford, and Brady Sanders accounted for 81 percent of Texas' entire point total with 19, 18, and 17 points scored respectively.

The Lady Raiders will try to avoid a winless season in the Big 12 in their final conference game at Oklahoma, Monday at 7 p.m.
