Tech ends season on 20-game losing streak
OKLAHOMA CITY — Texas Tech started strong against seventh-seed TCU on Friday, but couldn’t carry that first-half success over into the second.
Junior Amber Battle led the way with 23 points while freshman Ivonne CookTaylor scored a career-high 18 in Tech’s 75-59 loss to the Horned Frogs in the Big 12 Conference tournament.
“Man, they just, I thought, left it all out there,” Tech coach Candi Whitaker said. “Amber played 40 minutes and Ivonne played 39. They were exhausted, but I thought they played extremely hard on both ends. I thought they played every possession.
