Liz Donohoe scored 13, putting the Cowgirls ahead for good on a 3-pointer late in the first half and icing the win with four free throws in the last 21 seconds. Brittney Martin had 14 points and a game-high seven steals.

Kelsi Baker led Texas Tech (21-10) with 17 points and a season-high 14 rebounds.
