The #10 Lady Red Raiders suffered their 2nd loss of the season. They came up short against the Kansas State Wildcats. Tech had a chance to win with two looks at the basket and a jump ball that went to Tech. With 6.6 seconds left on the clock. Smalls put up a lay-up but the ball did not drop through and was tipped to mid-court.
It was a very tough and tight game.
Tech needs to improve on their FT%.
Next up is the ranked #1 Baylor Bears. I am hoping Tech can pull out an upset and beat the Bears at the USA on Wednesday, Jan 18, 2012
