You would think these two teams are identical. They almost have the same exact look and feel of the Lady Raider teams from 2004 and 2013. As you take a look aty the stats, record etc. you get a feeling that the players from the highly successful 2004 team have came back to play again.
My point? In 2004 Texas Tech upset 1st ranked Baylor in Waco on just about this day. If Tech can pull of the huge upset tonight be ready for a storm in the Lubbock area because we need to get behind this team.
Some people may think I am crazy and some people may think I am out of control but I really believe that the Lady Raiders can do this tonight if they put all of there heart in it.
This also is the best start to the Lady Raiders season since 2004 and crazy enough about this time in 2004 the Lady Raiders beat the first ranked Lady Bears
The Lady Raiders won its last two games and completed season sweeps of West Virginia (76-63) and TCU (64-46) last week to end a two-game losing skid. Senior Casey Morris led the team in points each game with 20 and 18 while Christine Hyde had a breakout game on the boards Saturday.
Baylor (22-1, 12-0) is looking to extend its Big 12 Conference game winning streak to 35 on Tuesday. Tech remains as the last team to win a Big 12 Conference game against Baylor (Feb. 19, 2011). Baylor has not lost a Big 12 game at home since March 7, 2010 (70-54 vs Texas).
My prediction- Baylor 72 ~ Texas Tech 61
