In front of 5,242 elementary school students, Texas Tech Lady Raider Basketball routed Houston, 84-60, during the third annual Education Day.

The Lady Raiders (5-3) had a slow start in the first quarter, only scoring 15 points. But back-to-back 20+ point quarters gave Texas Tech a 24-point lead heading into the final quarter.

Texas Tech shot a season-best 58.5 percent from the field while holding Houston (3-5) to 42.1 percent.

The Lady Raiders tallied a season-best 16 steals and tied the season-best 23 forced turnovers against Houston. The last time the Lady Raiders have 15+ steals in a game was on Nov. 21, 2015 when Texas Tech recorded 17 vs. Southeastern Louisiana.

Five Lady Raiders scored double-digit points in Wednesday's win. This is the second time this season five Lady Raiders have scored in double figures. Junior center Jada Terry led the team with 16 points as she went 6-for-8 from the field. Freshman Arella Guirantes and senior Ivonne CookTaylor followed with 12 points each.

Freshman guard Grayson Bright earned her first career start and tallied a career-high 10 points.
