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.

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.
