December 3, 2011


— Kierra Mallard had 18 points and 15 rebounds to help No. 19 Texas Tech beat No. 16 Penn State, 70-66, on Saturday.

Jordan Barncastle made a three-pointer off an inbounds pass with two seconds to play to seal the win for the Raiders (7-0), who held off a pair of late surges by Penn State (6-2).

Texas Tech led by seven with 3:30 to go, but the Lions twice pulled within one on threes by Maggie Lucas and Alex Bentley.

Bentley’s shot made it 67-66 with 34 seconds remaining. Penn State knocked the ball out of bounds on the Raiders’ next possession with a second left on the shot clock. Barncastle then drilled the clinching bucket from the corner.
