In the final minutes, Texas Tech left the door open for the Wildcats to complete the comeback as the Red Raiders missed free throws with less than 10 seconds left. After a missed free throw by Tech Tasha Dickey couldn’t convert a pass to Brittany Chambers as it just missed by inches as it went out of bounds (hail r the Wildcats as team to lose their final home game with the Seniors but you got to enjoy the fight that they showed in the 2nd half as they almost rallied from 10 down late in the game.
