In the second game of the season, the Lady Raiders knocked on the door of another near-100 point performance. Junior Sydney Goodson led the team in the barrage by scoring 21 points (new career high), followed by Brittany Brewer who notched another double-double performance of the season (18 points, 14 rebounds), then rounded out with Jo’Nah Johnson and Alexis Tucker who had 17 each.
The big stat-line of the night was tying the “made threes in a game” school record. Between Goodson, Nailah Dillard, Jo’Nah Johnson, and Chrislyn Carr they managed to record 14 three-point plays throughout the game. The last time Texas Tech women’s basketball scored as many was fifteen years ago against Oklahoma in the Marsha Sharp era.
It seemed close for Florida A&M through the first quarter, but Texas Tech put an end to hope when they rocketed ahead with a 22-4 run in the second. The Lady Raiders hit eight threes in that period to set the school record for “threes made in a quarter,” and also set a new school record for points in a quarter with 36. That blistering roll never ceased, and the Lady Raiders moved to 2-0 following the final buzzer on a 98-60 victory over Florida A&M.
Up next Texas Tech will host Northwestern State at 7pm at the USA.
