The Lady Raiders had a very frustrating season and did not get a win in conference play and are the 10th Seed in the tourney. The TCU Horned Frogs were able to get 8 wins over Big12 foe and enter the tourney as the 7th Seed.
This game will be the 43rd time Tech and TCU have played. Texas Tech dominates the series with a 39-3 record.
Amber Battle was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team
"Battle led the Lady Raiders in scoring this season with 16.2 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game and 1.1 steals per game. Battle ended the regular season as the sixth-best scorer and No. 8 in rebounding - the only guard in the Big 12 Conference to rank in the top 10 in each category.
She scored in double digits in 25 of 29 games and had 20 points or more in eight games. That is the highest points per game average by a Lady Raider since LaToya Davis averaged 18.9 points per game in 2005-06.
Battle started all 29 regular season games this season after starting only one game in her first two years at Tech. She totaled six double-doubles this season and became the first Lady Raider to score 30 points or more in a game in seven years when she scored 32 against Kansas State on Jan. 14."
